    The good:
    -Very great course for a PR: Swim is calm, bike is flat with a few rollers, run is challenging but fast
    -Crowd support at transitions is great
    -Plenty of nutrition throughout run course
    -Ice sponges on run course (this isn’t the case for all IM courses, so it was nice to see them here!)
    -Run course is an out-and-back, so you know what to expect and when to push on the back half of the course

    The not so good:
    -Finish line was kind of underwhelming (on a grass field in the middle of people getting food from a hot dog truck – kind of anticlimactic)
    -Race shirt was meh
    -Post-race food did not have a ton of variety (bbq sandwiches and hot dogs)
    -Muncie isn’t the most exciting venue – I’d recommend staying in Indianapolis and driving to the race site if you’re coming from out of town
    -Swim may not be wetsuit legal (wetsuits were NOT allowed this year)

    Overall, I’d recommend this race if you’re looking to PR, but it can be hot. As with other IM events, the organization and support is phenomenal, but this won’t be the most interesting scenery in the world.
