Event comments:

Was a beautiful area for a race. Had lots of volunteers to help with direction, water, etc. Amazingly, they had no chip timing so had people taking the times. I haven't ever been in a triathlon without chip timing.
Total race time was right around 3 hours, perhaps slightly less. All in all I didn't suck, am not that tired, and wasn't last so I am happy.

All times are approximate until I look at the results if and when they post them online. I looked at my race sheet at the race but can't remember exactly
Course: loop, lake was really nice. Was refreshing after swimming in the green soup that passes for lakewater here in Madison.

Once again the times are approximate until results posted online. I could probably have hit this harder but was fairly unfamiliar with the course and it was pretty hilly. Very pretty bike course.
