I’m so glad I raced today. Not just for the swag but for the awesome course and fun crowd. There were a lot of first timers today, whom I admire… way to be badasses, ya’ll! And finally, thanks to all the great volunteers and race staff. You all rock.
Thank you for a great race. We all had a blast!!! What a great turn out of Women!!! Thank you for creating a welcoming race for all level of racers…from first time racers to us silly Masters+ Women on fixed gear with pink “I’m with Awesome” socks on. Look forward to the rest of the series.
My two daughters did the kids’ race and had a wonderful time. Kudos for putting on a fun event. I did the tri the next morning and had a great time as well. Did it 5 years ago as one of my first triathlon experiences and it was just as much fun this go round. Thanks for putting on fun races!
