Anyone coming to Panama City for the GCT 70.3 this year? It's held on the IMFL course and is a great event- one of the longest running stand alone triathlons in the country. Formerly a Kona qualifier back in the 'old days'!

I am heading there on Friday from the Destin area, staying at the host hotel.
It will be my first 70.3 and I already am filled with anxiety!
Crossing my fingers for good weather!

Great course- great race. Weather looks sunny and hot, so run will be hot. I'm in Panama City staying at beach for race.
Good luck!

Looks like some rain with strong winds. It is going to be a tough ride back in.

possibly- i would prefer calmer swim too. Marine forcasts can change in minutes around here- we'll see.

Roughest swim conditions I've seen- looked like a tropical storm type surf. Right call to cancel swim this year. Great race otherwise.

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?

Some mistakes I made during the Hawaii Ironman 70.3. Don't be caught out on the course not knowing how or not having the equipment to change a flat tire.

The swim is ALWAYS a cause for concern when it comes to competing in a triathlon. This is the event for which you need to concentrate on RELAXING.
