T-7 Days Till RocketMan 70.3 Triathlon

My next 70.3 race.

This Sunday I will be in the RocketMan 70.3 race.  This is a unique race because it will be held on the historic Kennedy Space Center complex, Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.  This should provide for some unique scenery.

With your registration you get a free ticket into the Kennedy Space Center which will be cool because I have not been there since I was about 6 years old.

What are you doin this weekend?

  1. I almost signed up for this race. My in-laws live in New Smyrna Beach and would have been awesome, but it did not work out. The bike looks like it is going to be awesome! Good luck and have fun!

  2. I'm doing Rev3 70.3 Knoxville this weekend although your race sounds like it could be more fun than mine. I'm guessing that the swim is in salt water? I've been down, around there a few years ago and it's a pretty good time! I think you'll have a fun day at Kennedy! Take the bus tour that takes you out to where you can see the launch pad!

    1. I've been thinking about doing Knoxville. Let me know how it is. My mother lives near there.

      The ride was on KSC and we got to cycle past all three pads, the launch building and all the other buildings. It was alike a personal unguided tour. It was really cool

  5. That is pretty cool! I grew up in Florida and can remember going to Kennedy a few times on field trips, but like you I haven't been there since I was a kid.

    Good luck!!

    1. I don't think I have been to the center since I was about 6 years old. I want to go back this summer and visit.
