    Enjoyed the race and the caring devotion of the staff to all of the athletes. The bike scenery was awesome as well as challenging and showed off teh beauty of Texas Hill country.
    Where are all of the pictures taken during the race?

    This was my 2nd hits half-ironman… look forward to lots more. I like the smaller venue where we can mass start and share the race day with all of the participating athletes. Joe is awesome in transition are!!!!

      This was my first full and I can’t thank the staff enough for making it a terrific experience. Everything from the race organization to the personal attention the staff gave was first class. What can you say about a race organizer that takes the time to learn your name and make you feel welcome!
      As for the course – The swim had a good lay-out, the bike was hilly, hot and windy and the run was hot (and hilly). Not exactly PR conditions, but I just settled in on a slower pace and enjoyed the scenery.
      I can honestly say I got everything I wanted out of my first full. It’s true, the longest distance you cover on race day is the one between your ears.

      Thanks Mark and staff
