Maybe it's good to have one spare in case you land up going somewhere and finding a last minute event you want to do. Also, are you going to the Galapagos? How cool!
So far signed up for IMC on Aug 30. Will probably throw in some local triathlons before then but haven't looked for anything in particular. One thing I'm considering is The L.O.S.T. Race (http://lostswimming.com/lost-race/
) - it'll depend on when it is and how brave I'm feeling.
That looks fun - DO IT!!! Take advantage of the open water!
I'm signed up for a 10km in May. Because it's super close to my cousin's place (family visit!) and there's socks that say "Get $hit done". There are worse reasons to sign up for stuff, right?
I also want to do the local Swim/Run race, but I'm terrified of the length/amount of running. It's in July, so I have a lot of time to waffle.
