  • Comments: Third time to do this race. Will never miss it and really enjoyed it this year! I kept thinking it was going to be partially cancelled or all of it. The weather was crazy but I enjoyed it because how often do you get to race in these types of conditions.

  • Comments: The only thing I didn't like was getting out bikes out. It took just a little bit but we had to wait to cross the run path. I would have liked to get my gear and leave once I was ready. Had this been a body crushing race, I wouldn't want to wait around. Everything else, went amazing.

  • Comments: The only issue I had was with the weather and that should not have any reflection o the Ironman organization. Despite the very challenging conditions, they did a fantastic job with respect to safety and providing information to the athletes. I would definitely do this race again, and again.......

  • Comments: This was my first 1/2 Iron distance race and first race ever to attend that was an Ironman. I was thoroughly impressed with the organization, the activities, the exhibit, and the volunteers. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and will make this an annual race.

  • Comments: The event was pretty organized. Other than the run, the course layout worked well. The race swag wasn't anything to write home about, but I guess I paid for the IRONMAN branding not the goodies. Despite a very difficult run, I still managed to make my unofficial time goal of 6-6.5 hours. Ultimately, I am now an IRONMAN 70.3 finisher and proud of it! A big thank you to Keri for her support and encouragement throughout all my training and on race day. And I couldn't have done it without Jesus on race day, guiding me and encouraging me every step of the way! Thanks for reading.

  • Comments: I really like the bike course (smooth and flat!) and the 3 loop run course around Moody Gardens. I thought it was well planned and executed too. The swim was good too, although I didn't care for all the salt in my mouth. Overall a really good race, and I would do it again.

  • Comments: Awesome experience, well organized staff and volunteers. Very supportive city, and a really fun course. Overall, I have nothing to complain about. I went in for the experience and to finish. I learned a lot, and I now know tons of things that will help me for my next half. And that one, I'll have goals! Big goals. I have expectations now!

  • Comments: Volunteers knew how to handout a water bottle. WTC should offer proteins / healthy food at the post race meal (not just pizza, soda , chips and fruits).

  • Comments: This race was a blast, a great pick for my first HIM. Most everything was organized and ran smoothly. Volunteers were great, i thanked all of them that i saw. The swim was rough for me just because i didnt know what to expect. The bike course was gorgeous and fast. And the run was good because we got lots of fan support and nutrition (especially ice to cool down). One gripe was the run course cut off the ONLY EXIT from the parking lot, and i almost missed my flight because of the backup.

  • Comments: It was a good race. I will probably do it again. It didn't have enough porta potties around transition I didn't think. 2-3 in transition and 2-3 out of transition for 2800 people.

  • Comments: well run race. plenty of post race food and drink this year. some aid stations were slow in filling/handing out water/perform/cola in the later laps. no ice sponges this year...1st aid station ran out and never saw any others. they did have cups of ice at all aid stations though.

  • Comments: I had a lot of fun and due to my IT band issue, I was happy to show up for my first HIM mostly uninjured, yet slightly undertrained. I am happy with my BT custom training plan/coach to help me get there! I had a Ironman buddy tell me to pray and enjoy the race. I wrote that on the back of my right hand and looked at it and did both often during the race. It was a little something that just helped ease my mind and help me to enjoy the experience. I also always write my families initials on a finger and added my BT training group (BDAS) on another finger. Both groups helped me get to and across the line!
