For my first triathlon, twelve years ago, I....
-Found the race listed in a paper magazine
-Filled out the paper application
-Attached a paper check
-Put it in an envelope with a stamp
.... and used Yahoo Maps to find my way there.
Tomorrow, I'll be racing my first half marathon in....uh... a long time. This time, I:
- Found the race and signed up online
- Got regular race day updates via email
- Mapped my way to the race via GPS
And, for the coup de grace, you can follow updates live and on twitter.
