Event comments:

Great race. Packet pick-up was a little confusing because everyone had to sign another waiver before getting their packet. Seemed odd. But I haven't raced a tri since Marquee 2012 so maybe things have changed. The first 20 minutes of the mandatory athlete meeting didn't give us any info on the course or race day and I had to leave because of another commitment. NOt usre why it was mandatory. I realy like this race and I signed up for the seiries so SOMA will be my first half Ironman distance.
