    I enjoyed this race very much. It was well run. The price was better than some races. The awards were better than others I have seen. The lake water was warm even though the race is a little late in the season. Some people did use a wet suit but it was not needed. The run was part woods and part road. The woods section was clear and in good shape. Some nice views on the bike route. The staging area was well organized and quit large. All markings were easy to find and plenty of volunteer support.
