Summary: Get ready for some climbs
Comments: Be prepared for a swim with a few knocks along the way - loating start and crowded. The bike speaks for itself - serious climbs, mind bending descents and you get to do it twice. The run is up out of town then down hill and rolling and the opposite in the return. Steep hill by the Olympic ski jump area - which bekons you from miles away coming back - dont be fooled its still a ways off when you first get a fglimpse. Once you've compelted the course - the sprint around the oval is fantastic! People screaming - no matter how tired you are you will be ready to jump in the air at the tape. Great atmosphere - serious athletes and a beautiful town.

Summary: The best IMNA race if not the best IM race.
Comments: This is an Ironman town. The race day is experience cannot be topped. The race start is an incredible site to behold for both competitiors and spectators, and the support for racers (volunteers and spectators cheering) the rest of the the day is phenomenal. Finishing in the historic Olympic Speedskating Oval is an awesome experience no matter how many times you've done so. I've been there since day one and I can't believe it gets better every year.
