Event comments:

This event was poor planned. Counters were visiting during race and miss-counted. The course was poorly marked having to slow down to try and figure out where to go next. There wasn't an award ceremony and they were giving out trophies prior to the last racer coming in, which is simply poor form when putting on a race. I more than likely will not do this triathlon again.

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.
