Last week we had Lance Panigutti on the show to talk about the Boulder Peak and the 5430 Series. Last week we talked about the bargain price of $300 to register for all 3 races. I made a bit of a deal about the 'early bird' price and encouraged folks to register before midnight on New Year's Eve. We thought it was going to take a modest bump up to $330 - well it didn’t. I just checked yesterday and it's $315. $315 for the Sprint, Boulder Peak Olympic, and a half Iron distance race.
