<p>Thanks, Jen!  I did Timberman 70.3 last year as a relay with my husband; I swam and biked and he ran.  I get to do the whole thing this year!!!</p>

RTB is the weekend after so I have been 100% run focused.  I haven't been on the bike or in the water since Timberman.  With that I don't have any specific goals other than the usual have fun, go fast and finish w/o injury.  It will be fun to see what Pumpkinman is all about.<br>

<p>I will be doing the HIM on Sunday.</p>
<p>My wife will be doing the sprint on Saturday, and volunteering on Sunday.  .</p>
<p>I did thie HIM last year and it was one of the best races all year.  Swim venue was nice, and the run up the hill to T1 is like nothing else you will encounter in a race (maybe with the exception of the 'over the river and throught he woods' of the Ashland Tri - for all of the Mass folks).  Good bike and run.  Excellent post-race feed and organization.</p>
<p>Definately a hidden jewel of the northeast.</p>

<p>Very cool!</p>
<p>Any advice regarding said hill?  I'm thinking I'll probably just walk up it.<br>

<p>The hill is ~ 200 yds long and very steep.  There is a timing mat at the bottom (I think this mat records the "official" end of the swim), and a timing mat at the top (which records the "official" start of T1).  Last year I stripped the wetsuit to the waist and ran up it.  It took me 1:23, which was 57th fastest overall.  Winner was 1:00, slowest was 2:48..</p>
<p>It is hard, and you will be out of breath.  The surface is nice grass, so no need for shoes.  I think most people either strip wetsuit off, or to the waist before crossing the mat.  I think I'd go to waist so as not to carry it all the way up. I really tried to run fast, but relaxed, and not go overly anaerobic.</p>
<p>Another strategy is to rest, catch your breath before crossing the mat, SPRINT up the hill, and forget about the rest of the race.  You may win the prize (last year it was an Adirondack chair).  Just kidding.</p>
