: Anyone out there do the "TinMan" New England regional Long Course championship
: at Tupper Lake, New York? Was my first 1/2 IM and fighting those 3 ft waves
: in 30-40 mph winds ALLMOST made me want to stop after the swim. Take away the
: wind and it would have been a great race. I least I finished, granted it was
: middle of the pack, but I'll get better.
I was there, along with 19 other members of the NYU TriClub. I thought
the swim was ok, but the roads we had to bike on were terrible. Our club
won't go back until they resurface the roads. Plus, the relays had to
shell out quit a lot of money and I don't think there were any awards
given for relays. I hate to complain too much, because I was really
pleased with all the water stops and the enthusiastic fans and volunteers
along the way, and the beautiful run course, BUT I think the race
management could have done a bit more. Having some food on hand after a
race is always a good idea. And giving out Power Bars and nothing else to
the age group winners was pretty lame.
