Summary: IMAZ is a nice flat race and it's early in the season
Comments: I did the race in April 07, before they switched to Nov. It was my first IM. It was windy on the bike, out on the Beeline. I'm a local so I enjoyed the course. I would recommend this race to first timers because the loops are nice and relatively flat and theres plenty of aid, but if you're back east you'll have to train thru the winter. It can be warm out there. It's getting harder and harder to get into these NA Sports races. Plan way ahead. The services for the atheltes are good, with massage after, food, and a nice banquet.
Comments: Swim was not so pleasant. Course was OK. I wish they had more family activities such as IMKIDS that the Euro Im's do.
