Two years ago, because of Hurricane Sandy, I experienced the cancellation of the year's A race. It was a wrenching experience, redeemed by the availability of another race a few weeks later (the Brooklyn Marathon). That's not going to work for my tri-friends. October 26 is the bitter end for the tri-season in the Northeast. I would be very frustrated with the organizers for not having their act together . . .

Max will no doubt have thoughts on this post. Each of the last two years, I have considered signing up for the first Brooklyn Triathlon. Last year the event was scheduled in mid-November, and was cancelled well before, when somebody realized that it would be really cold!! They announced a better date, and a simpler course, and a whole bunch of friends of mine signed up. I would have, were it not a week before the Marathon. Well, it looks like I'll still have an opportunity to do the first Brooklyn Tri. Yesterday they cancelled again, posting this on their website. Gotta say, August seems a bit late to be submitting a request for a permit for a major event. Just sayin' . . .
