Competitor magazine editor BOB Babbitt had a great comment in his editorial, basically amounting to:
Don’t consider it a race, consider it a catered workout.
Malibu’s coming up quickly. I still need to sign up for Hermosa. I’ve registered for the Long Beach 1/2 and Dave and I are registered for the Solvang’s Finest metric century. I decided to skip doing a tri Sept. 11th because of a) too much money spent on vacation and b) too much money spent on other events. (Also it was a matter of traveling.) However, Dave & I will be going to the first meeting for the LA Roadrunners fo next year’s LA Marathon instead on Sept 10th.
