This was my first time and I thought it was pretty sweet. I did a 6 man team (I now have a new respect for those that did the 1, 2, or 3 man teams) and we had a blast. Running under those conditions (weather and mental) was something I've never done before. It's totally different than any marathon or 70.3 I've done.
I didn't do the race, but a good friend of mine did. They had a 3-man team and had the fastest time of any team that small and 3rd fastest time overall. I was exhausted just listening to him talk about it. Blows my mind how y'all did this, but I would love to give it a try next year!
