2 New Triathlons for 2014 (West Viriginia and Chicagoland)

I had plans to do this post on Cyber Monday but I am in the midst of buying a home and it has taken over a large part of my life! I might need to put a rant on my personal blog one of these days as this process has been crazy.  A billionaire needs to come up with a HouseMax .. like Carmax.  No fuss, no games, no secrets.. just let me buy a house! We have lost 3 houses and we are bidding over list! (and yes, we are well qualified with good credit) Ok, mini rant over.  Anyways, back to triathlons...

Wanted to feature two new triathlons/dualthons for 2014... both of which happen to be August 3, 2014.  They are in different regions of the country and really like that they provide options for individuals to race in many different ways.  I have many friends that aren't quite ready to commit to and these events provide ways for everyone to be part of the action.
