What is next? Well I am signed up for IM California-Oceanside 70.3 in March. If my knee continues to behave, my plan for next year is one or two 70.3s and several shorter tris. I also want to focus on my weight and conditioning. For a former obese ~400 pounder I have done well. But by triathlete standards I am heavy. It shows in the pictures this year, I really need to get the weight down some more. This will help with speed, but more importantly it will save the joints and muscles stress, allowing me to keep doing this stuff.
No 140.6's next year, unless, of course the Kona Lottery comes up for me! :-) I'd walk through hell in a gasoline suit to race at Kona.
