Yes, I finally did it and signed up! I am sooo excited as this race is legendary around local area triathlon circles both for the unique experience and the difficulty of it all...and did I mention, supposedly incredibly HILLY!
"The American Triple-T Ohio is based on a unique 3-day, 4-event, long distance format triathlon with participants competing on 2 person teams or in the solo division. This event is unlike any other triathlon and offers participants intimate camaraderie not often found in traditional triathlons."
"This is one of the hardest events you will do."
"People claim it is harder than an Ironman."
Guess we shall see!
They also gone on to say-

Oh, I have wanted to do this race for years but have never been able to commit until now! Not only that, it appears there is a large group of CTC and BAFF team members heading down for it which is sure to add to my fun factor!
Also I am excited to have an awesome partner as the other half of Team Edwards, the non-related super awesome Tim Edwards! Time to get my butt in gear as this will be the start of a busy triathlon season which again will be ended by a return to REV3 Cedar Point Full! Woohoo, bring on 2011!
