I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – SavageMan is my favorite (and hardest) triathlon of the season! I’m in my 4th year of racing (of the 5 years in existence) and it just keeps getting better. I love the course, the volunteers, the other racers, and the laid-back feel of the entire weekend.
Of the 4 years, this year was by far the coldest and most windy. The morning had a slight chill – but I was hoping the sun would come out and warm things up. Wishful thinking – the sun never came out and it was cold the entire race (about 45 degrees with a strong wind)

I love this race, absolutely love it. After we raced on Saturday, I said to BJ: “We should start charging our friends a fee for introducing them to this race”. I was joking, of course, (kind of), but this year we had 5 friends join us for SavageMan weekend. We rented a huge house (log cabin-esque), and celebrated with lots of wine, hot tub excursions, and (real) fires – it was so much fun. I already can’t wait for 2012.
A HUGE thanks to race management, race officials and all of volunteer for making SavageMan an awesome triathlon experience!
