I did the half and the rain was a distraction, but other than being careful while biking and having to keep my gear in plastic bags in the tranistion area, I thought the temps were much better to race in as compared to the Full-Half the week prior. Not being a strong biker, the rolling hills provided a challenge along with the feeling I was riding into the wind for most of the course. I liked the running 3 loops, but once again it had enough hills to make it challenging. I thought it was a well run race, it was good to meet some other DC tri people at the start and to see them along the course. I would prefer something else other than Bar BQ for a post race meal.
