      Coach won't let me do a full iron next year, if all goes well with the sprin int may, I might do a jun or early july oly, and there is a half at the end of august I'd be well lined up for.

      Yep, just take it one step at a time. Don't commit to anything until you make the next step successfully. No undue pressure that way. But nice to have it on the radar of possibility....

      Yes, the sprints and olys tend to be cheap, so even without early bird discounts they don't break the bank.

      The half, early bird is already over, and this race isn't expected to sell out at all, let alone 2 months before the race! :)

      Only thing I will commit to is the next race, which at this time is the first sprint :)
