  • Comments: Crossing the finish line on my first triathlon was really cool, and hearing them call out my name (which I didn't expect) was surprisingly satisfying. One of the coaches for my program was right nearby at the finish, and the volunteers were incredibly friendly and helpful. They helped me turn in my chip and find post-race stuff. Definitely wish there had been volunteers at the bike entry/exit to point it out, as all that was left by the time I got there were some cones. (I had to ask a cop.) All in all, this was a great race for me! I had more fun than I've had in a long time, even though the full swim/bike/run cycle was harder than I expected (and I expected it to be hard). Like anyone, I wonder if I could have gone faster, but I feel like I made good decisions and drew a good performance from myself for the day. VERY much looking forward to my next event. I'm addicted.

  • Comments: Fun race to start the season. Cold, but that's to be expected due to time of year. I'd do it again.

  • Comments: I like the races that Dallas Athletes Racing puts on. It was very windy today and not quite as cold as it was last year. Oh yeah I forgot ... it wasn't raining he whole time like last year.

  • Comments: This was a good first triathlon for me. The only negative for me was that it was sooooo cold and windy. If the temps were up or the winds down a little more it would have made it a little more enjoyable.
