There were about 50 people in my wave, and it was an in water start just off the shore line. After the first right hand turn, things thinned out and you were able to pretty much swim by yourself.

I had a good swim, but was really discombobulated coming out of the water. There was a bit of a walk to transition but nothing too bad.

Course: The course is basically a giant, 0.6 mile square in Lake Absegami. The lake itself was pretty clean, and the water was cool at around 62 degrees. The air temperatue was also hovering near 60 degrees, so when you got into the water it didn't feel that bad. I had on a full wetsuit so that obviously helped.

Course: The corse was three loops. The first part of the loop was about a mile of very bumpy roads. The road consisted of large concrete slabs laid together and every 50 feet or so there was a depression where the two slabs meet. After that it wsa mainly lightly traveled roads.

Performance:
Course: The course is part road, and part trail. It's actually very nice if you like trail running. The course is marked decently but it can get confusing, so you really have to pay attention. Aid stations remained stocked deep into the race.
