Just signed up for the Santa Barbara Long Course Triathlon on August 25, 2007. I haven’t done this triathlon before but hear that it’s well-organized, features a beautiful course, and is a great destination race. It’s a bit shorter than a standard half-ironman (only 1 mile swim, 34 mile bike, and 10 mile run), but apparently includes a fairly challenging bike and run. Anyone have advice or tips for racing at Santa Barbara?
Will spend a few days before and after the triathlon to spend time with family and friends. Can’t wait.
