Who's In?

So is you is, or is you ain't? I'm in a pickle.

OK, so knowing that my race next year needed to be in November, I had signed up to volunteer at Florida and at IMAZ. At the time, I also knew that I probably would not have to race alone because lots of the local athletes and bloggy peeps were making noises about doing one of those two races.

NOW, howevah, everyone is downing tequila and talking about a Mexican vacation with the new Ironman Cozumel race. While I don't relish a 2.4 mile ocean swim or winding up in a Mexican hospital after being run over by a Mexican pickup truck, I also don't relish swimming Tempe Town Lake and riding/running a multiloop desert course by myself.

By.Myself.

Alone.

So Cozumel's registration appears to be open. What's it going to to be? Who's going? Anybody ready to commit?
Come on, all the cool kids are doing it. Who cares what mom says?

I know it sounds crazy, but I'm so tempted. Just not sure about 2 IMs in one year. I mean, people do it, but.... hmm!!

aint got the pesos for that flight, brother. 2010's got a better chance...although, going down under has more of an appeal to me than cozumel....i'm just sayin...

You doubters!

I am in with you Greyhound!!!

This race production company put on a good first year race at Cancun 70.3 and there are very high standards that a race director must meet for a race to be able to be an official 70.3 or Ironman race.

It will be cool to have a training buddy and one that lives up on my end of the city.

I'm with Tridogmom...
I quit going to Mexico a LONG time ago.
Depressing.
And scary too.

I might consider it in 2010. I just can't bring myself to sign up for another IM before I complete my first one. It just seems wrong.
