News: Race the Big Apple….Next Year!…..Maybe…

For me, the idea of unleashing my triathlon mojo on the streets and harbors of New York City sounds pretty cool. Apparently, it sounds cool to a lot of people. As mentioned in today’s New York Times, the Nautica NYC Triathlon runs on July 18th this year. Way back on November 1, 2009, registration opened online, and in less time it takes an NYPD cop to eat a jelly doughnut, all 5600 spots were taken. Even some of the crafty hopefuls using two computers at once didn’t get a spot.

Luckily, the dreams of time trialing underneath skyscrapers doesn’t have to end. For next year’s race, organizers will apparently be utilizing a lottery system for entry. Check out their website after this year’s race for more info. I know I will. Wait….in that case….don’t look at it….
