    I'm not sure I'm ready. I am going to start training for the Men's Health urban athlon soon.

    My wife ahs run the Torn Shirt Xterra a few times...it's a good course and well run event. Running the Torn Shirt trail in Brighton isn't a joke...biking it is hard enough....They use 1.5 lops of the Murray Lake Trail for the MTB portion to make the mileage and keep the run and bike seperated. Contestants pass through the transition area a few times so spectators can see them. It works pretty well...

    I'll be there again this year (duathlon). Working setup the day before and racing the day of.

    As mentioned above, running the last leg of the Torn Shirt trail can be brutal. I raced the Du in 06, and it was a hot, humid day. I went out way too fast at the start of the race and paid for it at the beginning of the last run leg. I cramped really bad right at the start of the run and had to walk pretty much most of the trail. Needless to say, I am shooting to beat that experience this year.

    It is a fun event (regardless of my last race there). Come on out anyway and try not to worry about time. Finishing the race is what makes it worthwhile!

    i think i'll pass on competing this year. i want to improve my biking skills first. I'm definitely going to give it a try next year tho. I might come out to watch this year to see what it's all about anyway.

    Pending my work schedule, I may try to come out and watch but no competing for me either...at least not this year.
