Made It!

I'm really not sure how I did it.  I was sitting in front of my computer at midnight on Saturday - waiting for registration to open for the New York City Triathlon.  The clock moved and I started the process.  Several times, my computer locked up and I was in "wait mode".  It took a few minutes - but finally I completed the process and got my confirmation.

At the time, I had no idea that the race was selling out in 7 minutes! I've read that no triathlon has sold out faster!  That may or may not be correct - but 7 minutes is remarkable none the less.  Reading comments on ST and BT, it is clear that lots of people made the effort and got locked out of the system.  I'm thrilled to have made it in - I've never been to New York, so this will be a memorable way for me to make my first trip.

2010 is shaping up to be a busy triathlon year for me.  Longer distances and some travel next year will make it a fun year.  I have one more key race to get signed up for.  That is St. Anthony's which is close to home.  Then - do I dare consider Ironman Florida next November???  It's early and I'm not ready to make that commitment yet!
