Aquaphor New York City Triathlon 2013 race review

July 13th, 2013 was my second time doing the New York City Triathlon.  Entry into the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon is via lottery.  I think about 5000 people get in through the lottery.  They also have a pro division, para-athlete division, and relay division.  Included in the weekend's activities is a Diaper Derby at the expo, the Underwear run (where 400 people run through central park in their skivvies the Friday before the race), and a Doggy Dash at the finish line festival.

Mad Half Marathon 2013 Race Review

The Mad Half marathon was held in Waitsfield, VT on July 7, 2013.  This was the 3rd annual running of this race.  I decided on the Mad Half because I had hear some good reviews on a few running websites.  One of my good friends who lives in Boston just had a baby.  I figured could drive up to see her and get a quick snuggle with baby Alice then head to Vermont for the race.
