Yes, that was part of the rationale.

Though I will also be doing "serious for real" tris in something silly next season (sometimes, anyway), I'd like this race to be about fun.  I don't want to meet up with a bunch of BTers and be all worried about having to kick their azzes. (

I'm intrigued, put me on the "maybe" list!  It's a maybe just in case I end up as a host for a small growing being.  Or said being has already arrived.

I can totally make KC work...hubby goes there once a month for work so I can probably tie it in and get free travel/lodging.  Though somewhere like SoFla sounds more appealing.

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!

Whoa, whoa, whoa Chris....read again...I said "just in case"....we're pondering giving it ol' college try but nothing is growing in there yet LaughingLaughing

Dang it, I read the "said being has already arrived" part as meaning the seeds were sown. My bad, Good Luck.

BTW, I want in.  I want the Wonder Woman suit so I can put on my WW tutu in T1 and wear it for the rest of the race.  I think I need streamers for my road bike handlebars.

Put me in as a maybe, depending on location plus some of the other pending logistics.  I LOVE the idea!

OK, is there anything that we can consider to make it more likely?

I realise its not mid west, nor in Autumn, but I would be willing to jump over the pond for the 2015 outing if it was held near Austin close to the same week as SBSW. That way I could kill to birds with one stone, do a glitter tri with besties from BT, and get rat ar$ed at SBSW

I love planning the second annual Glitter Tri before we have the details of the inaugural one knocked out. 

This kicks azz.

Austin. Year two.  It's on.  I want to visit Austin anyway :)

I suppose we could get our shots and passports and head on down.

One place in TX that I'd like to visit, as well.

Well...

should we just call it?  Austin?

No reason it couldn't always be in Austin...

Everybody check this one out--looks like it's within driving distance from Austin. It's on October 13 this year.

It is my goal to be as cool as this guy by the time of the glitter tri and to have as much confidence as him to pull off that strut in speedos.

But will you bike and run in dress loafers and have Soco in your water bottle?

Kingsley and I will pretty much wear anything, anywhere, anytime.

Particularly if any of it involves a discount or sale.

We love Speedo-style suits. I've done a 9-hour trainer ride in Speedo bottoms and a sports bra! He more or less lives in a Speedo (minus the sports bra ... really hard to get 'em on around his lats). I'd do an IM in a speedokini in a heartbeat if there were one warm enough (for me).

So how's the weather in Austin in October? We don't want our delicate sensitive boys to have to deal with unnecessary and rather speedo-defeating shrinkage ... nor would we girls (or boys or whomever, I don't judge) want to risk shredding our tops, either.

You two are ridiculously cute. Does this mean you'll come?!?
Holy ballz, that would be awesome!

Looks like Austin is highs in the low 80s, lows in the low 60s for the first two weeks of October.  That sounds OK, right? Especially if the water is warm from the summer?

Aw, schpanks! Most people just leave it at "ridiculous" (verbatim, and true). Yeah, why the hell not? We also both fit neatly into a single bed if need be and can also sleep on nearly any surface.

If the water is warm and the air temp is closer to 80F than 70F upon emergence, certainly OK.

Awesome Katie!

We're still trying to dial it in.  I think we've decided Austin for year one (and possibly two, if there is a year two), but we're trying to dial in a date and a race.

I threw out the idea of this one: http://www.trifind.com/re_113285/BurnetTriHardChallenge.html

But maybe we should think about the end of September too??  I need to get a list of potential conflicts from people, as I would hate to miss anyone who would seriously consider coming, but already has a race planned that weekend.

FYI we have a great sprint in Wrightsville Beach, NC in September every year. This year they even added a beach cruiser division- great place to vacation, great time of year, and awesome race - cant imagine a better place to show off a new "kit". Setup events.com
