The article says today's NYC Tri was the warmest ever, with the temperature hitting 88 degrees at about 11 a.m. A few running buddies I follow on Twitter have reported that they are "surviving" the race, so although they're having a tough time with the conditions, it sounds like they've all managed to finish.

Unfortunately the NYC Triathlon website, www.nyctri.com, isn't faring as well as the competitors; it's been giving a "Site Unavailable" message all morning. The good news is that the NYC Tri Twitter page, www.twitter.com/nyctriathlon, is working, and updates are being provided there. They say they will continue giving updates via Twitter until the website is back up.

As for NYC Triathlon results, the Twitter account says they will be available this afternoon and the URL for results will be posted on Twitter.

2010 L.A Marathon Results

The L.A. Marathon results page is here - but it's been down much of the day, presumably because it's been swamped with traffic from runners trying to get their times. That page has a link to another L.A. Marathon results page, which has a bare-bones "provisional results" search: a simple search box that lets you look up runners by last name or bib number.

2010 Spring Lake 5 - General Registration Opens Feb. 12th

NOTE: Entry to 2010 Spring Lake 5 is now filled, but you can still get into the race by signing up to raise money through one of the race's charity partners.
- - - - - 
Most of the spots in the 2010 Spring Lake 5 mile race have been filled, but the remaining slots will be open starting on Friday morning, Feb. 12th at 5:00 a.m. - yes, that's what the Spring Lake 5 Web site says. Early registration opened to those who had run the race before, and the Web site says that that quota (7,000 participants) has been reached. 


Another 2,500 participants will be added through the general registration that beings Feb. 12th. So what about the extra 500 slots to make up the 10,000-runner field? I'm guessing those are reserved for people who sign up to run the Spring Lake 5 to benefit a charity.


As always, the Spring Lake 5 will take place the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, which this year is May 29th. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. at Ocean and Sussex Avenues in Spring Lake, New Jersey.
