The American Triple-T.

A super sprint triathlon on Friday. An Olympic distance race on Saturday morning. A reverse-Olympic on Saturday night. A Half-Ironman on Sunday. Add those times together and what do you get? One of triathlon's only stage races!

I'd been told about this race before, but I finally took a few seconds to look it up on my own this weekend and... holy crap, it sounds awesome! On one hand, it sounds like an incredible challenge. On the other... it's only about an hour from my parents' home in Ohio! It just doesn't get much more convenient than that.

Anyway, I wish I had thought to investigate the American Triple-T sooner - the 2011 edition actually takes place next weekend. If I'd known, I would have built it into my training schedule and planned a trip accordingly. As it stands now, I think I'm going to have to wait 'til next year and try to slot it in before Ironman France.

I'm really, really itching to get back to racing. I think next year, I'm going to try and fit in a few more events. Oceanside seems too good to pass up. Wildflower is definitely on the docket. Triple-T, then the big race. I can't wait.
