After seeing some other bloggers posts, as well as looking down the road to my own triathlon future, I have been trying to put together my 2007 Tri schedule. Here is what I have down so far...
March - Florida's Great Escape Triathlon (Olympic Distance), this is qualifier for Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon, if you place top 2 in your age group.
- Wildman Orlando 3/19 (this is a backup for Florida's Great Escape)
- NY Bike Ride (have not gotten too much info, but you hit all the great spots in NY City
May - Gulf Coast Triathlon (Panama City Beach, FL - Half Ironman), Qualifier for Ironman Florida 70.3, Ironman Wisconson, and one other Ironman event! Will be my second year at this event.
- Ford Ironman 70.3 Florida, the week after Gulf Coast Triathlon.
July - Tri the Parks Series (Georgia - Richard B. Russell State Park - Olympic Distance)
- Peachtree Road Race (10K run), been doing it since 1994!
- Atlanta's Finest 5K, benefiting Atlanta Police Department
August - Peachtree City Triathlon (Sprint Distance), will be my third time in this event.
September - Subaru Tugaloo Triathlon (Olympic Distance), Sponsored by the Atlanta Multisport Association
October - South Carolina Half Ironman OR
- Nevada Triathlon at Lake Mead (Olympic Distance) OR
- Subaru Emerald Pointe Triathlon (Sprint Distance)
**I am leaning towards the South Carolina Half Ironman**
November - Atlanta Half Marathon/Marathon (on Thanksgiving morning, I think), I will probably only do the half marathon, qualifier for the Peachtree Road Race 2008.
December - Virginia Highland Christmas 5K (road race)
I might try to squeeze something in around Jan/Feb to prepare for the Great Escape Triathlon!
I know, I am addicted, but it is better than crack cocaine...
**Note** No Ironmans this year... I think I am going to wait until 2008! That way I can really build up on my HIM distance in 2007, plus work more intensively on my training.
If you guys have any neat events in your city or state, please let me know. Right now this schedule is flexible, since the majority of the events have not opened up for registration for the 2007 season.
