Of the three (no less than two, for certain) triathlon’s I plan to do next summer, one is in the Adirondacks – the North Country Triathlon in Hague, NY on Lake George. I really am intrigued by what I am reading about this; in addition to a sprint, it also offers an Olympic distance course. I’m seriously considering doing this.
Also, I’m wondering, how nuts it would be to plan a tent camping trip up in the area during the time the triathlon is. How well will I sleep, in a tent (with my husband and three kids) the night before what would most likely be my second triathlon? Am I completely nuts? We love tent camping – I haven’t reached the point in my life, that my idea of camping includes indoor plumbing and electricity.
I grew up in the ADK and would love to experience this sport, in such a scenic setting. I really need to find out more about this particular triathlon – how past participants rate it. If you have any info at all, please share it with me!
