Event comments:

Awesome race! Superbly organized by a first time RD, there were lots of volunteers, plenty of food and fuel, chiropractic AND massage. The check in on saturday was incredibly well organized, and the shirts are really cute! Even the weather was beautiful. My only complaints were the walk...er, swim (maybe a deep water start?) and there could have been more mile markers for the sprint on the bike and run. These are nitpicky, though-it was a great race!
