tempe is a beautiful, clean city... the flora is much like tucson, but everything is groomed and looks professionally maintained. i could definately live here!!
we headed out to the course yesterday, basically 3 loops, out goes up the hill - back comes down. somewhat scenic, but takes us past a dump.
the run is a figure 8, another 3 loops around the transition area. good for spectators.
temp. will be a concern for all. 94 degrees (33 in canadian) but no humidy. which means it cools down in the shade. no shade on the course. could be interesting.
either way - i can't wait!
