Subject: Naples 70.3 in Jan. 2014
I'm from Chicago but am looking at going down to Naples in January 2014 and doing the 70.3 there. Any one done this race before or have any comments on if this would be a good place for a first timer?

I looked at the result times from the last few years and it seems like a pretty small field and in general very competitive times making it a fast field. Is this accurate?

Though its not all that important I guess I would prefer a field that has plenty of newbies and sub-par racers in order to keep morale up.

I'll be there doing the full Iron. Don't worry, you'll have plenty of slow company ;-)

I just finished the NYC marathon on Sunday and I think I'm going to venture into triathlons. I am doing an Olympic distance and I want to do a 70.3 next year too. Any advice?

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
