Subject: RE: Beach2Battleship Iron Distance Triathlon : Official Thread
I did it in 2010 when it was across the river, so the experience this year was different. Also it was very cold & dark, so different environment altogether.
There was no congestion when I came in this year. Spectators lined the streets and both sides of the chute which seemed long, allowing more time to soak in the feeling of accomplishment as you wrapped up a long day. Announcer called me by name & city. Pretty cool stuff wrapping up an awesome day.
I thought the finish was better, more spectators, improved overall experience. I was pumped once I dropped down to the riverfront and the spectators cheering your name made it all the better. Once I crossed, a volunteer grabbed me and let me away to the recovery tent where they attended to you like royalty.
I'll be back next year as I have unfinished business that needs to be attended!
