Subject: RE: Whirlpool Steelhead 70.3 Triathlon : Official Thread
OK, now that I am back in the land of internet............ My sister in Wisconsin only has dial up....
I agree with what everyone already said. The sign in, registration, Expo was terrible. Took me over 2 hours to go thru it all. It might have been longer. The good part was getting to talk with a bunch of folks while standing in line. Alot of new people who had a million questions. The same with going thru the stations for your registration, they could have all been in one line in sequence.
I got lost trying to find my way around town and ended up following someone with bikes on top of their car and made it to the transition area.
This was my first time I did Steelhead, and while I knew there were 2 start points, it never occurred to me how we got there. hahahhaaha, OK so we all walk. Other than the rain, it was a pretty nice walk.
I did the same, started slowly on the bike to start off, once the roads dried I picked it back up.
The actual race itself was ran very well. Aid stations in good spots. I did stop to talk to the Lauf Deutschland Lauf for minute.
I ended up with a 5:36, pretty happy all considered where I was 72 hours earlier and NO swim training at all.
