Who's In for the Soma Half?

Hey, Blogger Buddies!

I'm signed up for the Soma Half-Ironman in Tempe, AZ October 28th and I'm trying to get a feel for who out there in blogger world might be attending this race. Let me know. It's my 30th birthday, and I'm making a celebration of it! I'd love to meet some of y'all. I'm thinking a pre-race dinner is a must. Also, it'll be my preview for IM-AZ in April '08. Any of you guys signed up for that? Racing is all about having fun and meeting new friends. I'm just making sure I monopolize on the fun factor. Keep me posted!

There is another blogger who I think has already entered the event. I will search around and get back to you. There will have to be a big birthday part for you, of course...

I'm going to be there along with a large contingent from the First Wave Tri Club. I'm doing the Quarterman. I'm sure I can set up a dinner with some of the club members who have done the IM-AZ course in the past couple of years so you can pick their brains. We had more than 20 finishers in that race last year.
