  • Comments: It's hard to be objective about the quality of the race when my poor performance overshadows it. I really wish this had not been on DST weekend. I was pretty tired in the morning, and then the race started 30 minutes late. Aside from the tardiness, things were pretty well organized. Post-race food and drink were just getting started when I finished my race. I wasn't particularly impressed, but had I stuck around, probably would have been more welcome. The appeal of this race is that it is very early in the season, and the course is fairly beginner friendly. It's also local to Dallas/Fort Worth, being more convenient to the Fort Worth side of the Metroplex. Weather will always be a wild variable. The pool swim is both good and bad. It's nice for beginners, but can be crowded. I'm not sure I'll do this race again, but not because of how the race was operated. I'd almost rather wait another month to be more fit, to avoid the time change, and to chance the weather being a lot better.
