  • Comments: Once again, Kevin was late getting started. First swimmer was 10 min late getting in the water. Bike course had a lot of volunteers, but they faded on the way back in. There was a single lane railroad crossing and when I came back in, there was a bus parked on the tracks, talking to the volunteer, blocking the entire road. There was another intersection with no volunteer on the way back in, and I missed the turn. Luckily I realized it within a block and got back on course. Run course was fine with a lot of water stops, thank goodness. There was NO post race activities. I was handed a bottle of water and a finishers award. I never saw any tables of prepackaged food, there was nobody pointing finishers where to go. After racing for 5+ hrs, it woudve been nice to have sings pointing to a food tent, or a volunteer pointing us in that direction. This was very similar to his last race, though - late, with minimal amenities. And crappy shirts and medals at both races too.
