  • Comments: TBF puts on great events...I am always impressed with their logistical organization. Lots of volunteers, always right on time, and very proactive in helping address any issues. I had several volunteers/staff ask me after the race how my mom was feeling, because they either saw her pull out or were helping in the kayaks/beach and were worried about her. Great organization and I'll do as many of their races as I can fit in to my schedule.

  • Comments: This is not a chipped event so my times for each segment are based on wearing a stopwatch, bike computer, and GPS watch. Final time is based on official clock time. This is a great event and I plan to do a couple of more Tris here this season.

  • Comments: Love TBF racing. Rain or shine, they always put on a quality event. Overall I was 12 minutes slower than I did at this same race last June. Pretty evenly spread over all three events I think, I was just in WAY better shape last year than I am right now.

  • Comments: This was the 3rd race I've signed up for this year where it has been pouring down rain & storming on race day. The next time this happens I swear I'll reach over and hit the off button on the clock at 3:15AM & return to bed. While I understand a lot of people have a bad first swim experience, I must say I felt utterly defeated after today's race. Fortunately, everyone claims it gets better. I hope so. Thankfully, I have other events planned in the near future where I can improve my OWS skills. On another note, as I was leaving T2, the race announcer stated there were 150 no shows for saturday's race.

  • Comments: Everyone there was friendly. My brother's team was hosting the event and since I was wearing one of his jersey's then I had plenty of support out there on the run.

  • Comments: This is my third tri, and my third with TBFracing.com and I love them! Such a well run race. I'll be back in July for the same race. I'm looking forward to racing the exact same course again, I've now got a target to shoot for, I've got to beat my time next month!

  • Comments: Only thing I would like to see different would be split times for the race. They had multiple booths to see after the race ( bike shop, tri clubs ) and free massages. Post race food was good ( pasta, fruit, salad and cookies ). Didn't make people wait around too long for the awards presentation, and handed out awards 5 deep in each age group.

  • Comments: Overall, it was a great experience for my first foray into triathlons. After investing in a bike, I'm glad I like it. Now I can ramp my training up again.

  • Comments: I met my goal time of 1:15, which was 15 min better than last year. My legs felt great, because of a good peak and taper in my training. I just went too hard on the bike, which killed me on the run.

  • Comments: Oh, the secret goal was to beat my DH. Don't know official times but he says we were "within seconds" of each other. GREAT; maybe not a clear beating but still ego boosting for me! He swam strong, biked medium, and also had a poor run!

  • Comments: The only problem I had was entry into T2 - there was a guy with a flag just inside the gate and a woman just outside waving. I figured the guy with the flag was the dismount point, but the woman started shouting at me when I passed her (and I wasn't the only one!). A sign or some other signal would have prevented the need for shouting.

  • Comments: Well I finished. I am happy with that. I need to push the swimming training. I ended up doing breaststroke for more than 50% of the swim. I kept up with some doing that. I think some open water training would help. But the key is I need to do laps..laps..laps.. I found my self not pushing as hard as I could on the bike thinking I needed to save my self for the run. Next time I will push harder on the bike. The Run was ok...I know in August I will do better. :) I will have to wait for my times to be posted online. I have no idea how I did time wise.

  • Comments: Excellent, well organized race. Affordable compared to other races and love the volunteer for race credit program. Getting hung up in automobile traffic kinda sucked. Was frustrating and a bit unnerving / scarey. Would love to know splits and Transition times though
