If you have been looking at the Ironman Live website the last few days, then you noticed all the new 70.3 races coming out for 2008: New Orleans, Kansas and Rhode Island. These are great events so it's nice to see. I'm particularly excited about Rhode Island since it's close to where I live in New Jersey. The only negative is that it's the week before Lake Placid. Although I'm not competing this year, I do want to watch it and sign up for 2009. Could be difficult to get a pass from home to go away two weekends in a row. Love to see the new events. Now how about another full 140.6 IM in the East to accompany Lake Placid?
