Pumpkinman is a pretty awesome race. Kat, the race director, takes care of all the details as if it's a big WTC affair, yet it still very much has a local, low key feel to it. The best of both worlds!
|You do have to run up this into T1. There are actually prizes for the fastest times. Let it be known, I was in NO danger of winning one of these prizes.|
|It was a wet, chilly day but New Englanders are tough and I didn't hear any complaints. I kinda couldn't feel my feet at this point on the bike.|
|When I was finishing I heard a woman scream "You ARE a Pumpkin-woman!". Not sure how I feel about that.|
I really hope I get to return to Pumpkinman next year! I highly recommend it as a nice end of the season half or in preparation for a fall IM. Indeed, that's what I used it for. IM Chattanooga here we come!
