    This is my first Ironman, but not my first race. By far the volunteers in Louisville were the most helpful and friendliest I have ever experienced in any 70.3 or marathon. Chalking it up to Southern hospitality. The city was very welcoming to visitors and participants.

    Swim was cancelled due to algae bloom. Can’t do anything about Mother Nature, but the race directors did a good job organizing the start without a swim. Bike started by bib number unless you were a pro or lots of AWA points. The bike course was hilly and challenging. It had atleast 5400 gain in elevation. This was hard for a flat lander like me from Illinois, but it was doable. The run was 3 loops with lots of turns, but pretty flat. I’m not a fan of the loops, but I was able to break the run down into 3 separate segments.

    All in all, this is fantastic race and would do it again. Finishing downtown made me feel like a rock star.
