Anyway since i wrote this, about 30,000 new folks have joined the forum and another few hundred thousand are lurkers and front page readers, so it should be new to a lot of you.. It comes in 3 parts, and there are some cool old pics from back then too..
And i do not think it has been well publicized, but this year they are having a head to head rematch of that famous Julie Moss/ Kathleen McCartney crawling finish. Both women have been out of the sport for sometime, but i know they both have been quietly training all year for this. If you do not know what i'm talking about, well first of all you are not a real triathlete, and second go google the 82 race where julie crashed and burned and crawled across the line while leading the last hours of the race, only to have Kathleen run by her in the crowd, unknowingly winning the race while julie reached for the line on the ground.
And i did a 2.5 mile ocean swim race this weekend, and while meandering down the results list, look what i found? Go to #79, so she definitely has been training, and not a bad time for someone that was never a swimmer and over 50 years old now!! I did not get to see or talk to her, but i will be catching up for sure once in hawaii, so maybe i will have some more info on this 30 year later grudge match..
