Please note, this article has been updated to the 2010 Oceanside 70.3 Preview. You will want to read that post rather than this one, for the most accurate and updated information.

Thank you so much for this- I am getting ready for this race (my first 70.3) and this alleviated a lot of my fears.

Jim-

Great overview of the race including race tips and strategy! Love how you added the video to help with the "visualization" of the race.

Ok, now I'm scared after watching those Utube videos! Could I contact you about nutrition and running, Jim?

Jim - Thanks a million for this post (and last year's too)! It was very helpful as was your talk at B&L in Solana Beach a couple weeks ago. Successfully completed this distance for first time dispite a foot injury and exceeded my expectations thanks in part to your generous sharing of information. I also attended the clinic you hosted with Joe Friel among others. Thanks!

Thanks so much Jim! This guide was spot on when I raced Oceanside in the spring.

Do you happen to have(or know someone who has posted) a similar writeup on Ironman Florida?

Jim Vance said...

Tridude,

Thanks for the comment. I do not know someone who has, but I am considering writing something very similar for Florida and Arizona. Stay tuned to the blog.
