WTF is up with THAT?

So I finally decided to cross off "Sign up for races" from my To-Do list.

These include:
  • Santa Barbara Triathlon (8/25)
  • Donner Lake Swim (8/11)
  • Angel Island 12K (8/18)
  • Napa Valley Century (8/19)
  • Big Kahuna Triathlon (9/9)

I'll sign up for Foxy's Fall Century later. That's not until October. Sadly, the Treasure Island->Embarcadero Y swim falls on the weekend I'll be in Chicago. :( I LOVED doing that swim last year! The bonus is that it benefits the Embarcadero Y, which I now love even more that I am a spin instructor there.

Anyway - Santa Barbara website says Long Course is open. Been meaning to sign up for the last month, but just kept forgetting. I go to and THERE it says it's FULL. WTF?!?! Full?

Already? We're still nearly 6 weeks out!

Maybe it's a sign I shouldn't do it given my other ambitions during that time - the 12K run and the Big Kahuna (oh and the Donner Swim...). *sigh* I LOVE that race, though. LOVE IT.

In any case, I've e-mailed the registration director about this inconsistency and in the meantime, mailed my registration in with fingers crossed. Fate is tossed to the wind...

Hi Sarah,
Just wanted to wish you lots of luck and a great race at Vineman! We'll be up in Tahoe but we'll be thinking about you!!!

Thanks for the love!! I appreciate the support big time. :)

Have fun in Tahoe at the Trans Tahoe Relay! I can't wait to see the return of Team Tequila Goggles next summer.

5 races in a month?! That's crazy! Well at least for me. BTW, have you heard of this guy who did like 50 marathons in 50 days? He supposedly lives in SF.

Kaisen -

Yes, his name is Dean Karnazes. He's insane but amazing. You should look him up and read about him. He ran for a good cause, too. :)
