All of the motels are booked so I may be camping (ugh!) but I am returning to the carnage that is Wildflower Long Course (half Ironman) on April 30. I did the race last year (my only half IM) and it was brutal — two flat tires and 100 degree heat.
My hope is that it will feel short compared to NZ. That said, I haven’t been on a bike in a month so I have to get my act in gear!
