I conquer that it was an awesome race both on Saturday and Sunday! Volunteers, the spectators and athletes all had great enthusiasm. Everyone seemed to be encouraging everyone out on the run. I guess we were all suffering!
The run was super hot! I know I even asked several people if they were okay because they looked like they were suffering. I even offered someone my water because he looked like he was cramping. So I definitely thinking some more volunteers out there or at least another water stop between the two.
So that would be my only suggestion would be more water more often on the run course! But kuddos for those gals out at the turn around that stuck out there in the heat!!! Actually kuddos to all the volunteers!!!
The swim is the swim. I knew it would be a body bumper time. But for the most part it was okay. I didn't even get ran over this time! Hmmm, may be the training is paying off!!!
Definitely be out there next year again for both!!!
Change in swim, 3 reasons: 1. Easier to manage and not stretch water rescue of 1000y. 2. They are working on the dam wall with large rock right by the spillway. 3. IMO, looped courses are more spectator friendly. Tell me you didn't get a little charge when you run or bike by the crowd.
Some people say looped courses are boring.......but, give me a 2 mile course and 200 laps.....and we'll pull in 200,000 rednecks to watch it..... NASCAR. buzz
