Horrible swim. I over turned on the first turn. I found myself swimming in a crowd the wrong way. Found the right buoy and corrected. I lost a time.

Event comments:

This was my first Tri to Finish race. They did a good job. They don't have all of the bells and whistles of the bigger companies, but they were well organized and did a good job. The raffle wasn't what I was lead to believe. Overall I would race one of their events again

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

Any good race director will go over the triathlon swim course directions many times.
