    This was my first triathlon, and VERY enjoyable. The weather was excellent, and the staff had clearly done a good job of organizing the check-in process, setting up the finish-line area and getting the community out for support. Some things could use some improvement, such as making course signage somewhat more prominent and setting up the transition area for better traffic flow but the staff with whom I spoke listened intently to these comments and seemed sincere in wanting to use them to improve next year's event. Also, I have mixed feelings about the bike course. It was gorgeous, on one hand, as it followed the contour of the lake in the early morning. as i was riding, I remember thinking that it would be nice to drive up just to do a couple of laps around the lake. But therein lies the problem: there is no bike lane for much of that ride. I found myself looking over my shoulder every 200 yards or so just to check for cars. Made it somewhat harder to really put the hammer down. I did see one major accident - a rider was lying in the middle of the road with someone leaning over, hand on chest... Overall, people were friendly, and I had a wonderful time. It was very challenging and beautiful, and well-organized, with some room for improvement.
