Great people and one of my favorite race courses. I waited for 90 minutes afterwards for finish awards and ended up leaving. They need to do something differently there....otherwise, perfect.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.
