Rev 3 or Ironman

IMcollage
Decisions, Decisions. 
As you can probably see from my DailyMile Posts I've been a little busy in the fitness world. 
I'm into my 4th week of weight training and 2nd week of triathlon training.  The decision of competing for a figure competition or triathlon was made when I asked the hubs while he was doing squats if I could get my coach back. He said "What!? ........ (long pause, 10 more reps), sure baby, but no more Shoe Dazzle". I nearly fainted. Hubs watched as he thought I would have a temper tantrum in the middle of the weight room. I took a deep breath and said "Fine." I continued to hyperventilate the rest of the workout. Shoes or Sweat? I chose sweat, I'm crazy and I like it.
But train for WHICH RACE? 
Our lovely military lifestyle has us moving mid summer, which leads me to being prepared by October. The October races I'm deciding on are Ironman Miami 70.3 & REV3 South Carolina 70.3.
IM MIAMI 70.3
Pros: Cuban food, FLAT, Miami is Sexy
Cons: Last year was a FIASCO and money was reimbursed, so now Ironman is coming in to take over, 12 hours away from home so I would have to fly
REV 3 70.3
Pros: Rev 3's are supposed to Rock the swag, 6 hour drive, never been to South Carolina
Cons: Hilly (I'll be living in Mississippi which is FLAT , how will I train?)
So what do choose? Where would you GO? Are you competing in either?

REV3 all the way. For a bazillion reasons, but one of my "we give a hoot about our athletes" favorites - read the refund policy from both companies.
