  • Comments: Another excellent Multisport race by John Salt's group. I wish my fitness is better, but this is a good race to test my Flo wheel, as it's quite windy. ~5' slower than 3yrs ago, which was also a training day. Bike then was 57', run was 41' Lunch afterwards at Vineland Estates Winery, 1/2 hr from Welland - Mmmm delicious!!! :) Got nice bottle of wine and out of this world yummy natural dark chocolate almond bark.

  • Comments: I stayed for the awards hoping to be 3rd and it was looking good, until the real winner in my AG pointed out that the results are not showing she's in my AG. So I ended up 4th, I pretty much lost it all in transition 'cos I had problems getting the wetsuit off. But I took their biggest draw prize for the day, I was the very last name called, and I won a pair of Zoot race shoes! Yeah! Hubby and race photographer took lots of nice pix at this race - check this out - http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/photos/photo-thumbnail...

  • Comments: My only comment was that there were times I felt like I might be going the wrong way (run start and a part on the bike). More signs or volunteers directing traffic would be better.

  • Comments: Race could have had a couple more volunteers on the run course yelling instructions. There were too many people unaware of the true run course. There were enough drink stations if you stayed on course... where I was... NOTHING for 20 min. :(

  • Comments: This was a fantastic race. I had a good amount of rest going into the race and changed my nutrition slightly. I'm not sure what made the difference. Could have been either one or both of those variables. My times may not be great; in fact, I'm just a MOPer but that feeling that I had during the race and especially during run was absolutely incredible and it is what made the event for me. I can't wait to have that feeling again!
