If you partipated in the 2010 Great Floridian, regardless of the event you competed in, please leave a race report. If you have a blog that you have already posted a RR to, please let us know. It is my duty to read each and every post about the event and act upon it. This is YOUR chance to comunicate with us, and each other about how YOUR event with. Regardless if I was able to bring you up the chute or not to the announcement that YOU WERE TOUGH ENOUGH to finsih YOUR 2010 Great Floridian Triathlon, we want to hear from you.
I know I stress the word YOUR often, and as I was announcing the finshers from sunset until 1:30AM, someone asked me why I do that and it is because it all comes down to that for most people, they are not competing for the finsiher medal, shirt, or a plaque, etc, but to prove to themselves if they were tough enough or not to complete it this year.

Here is my RR:
Thank you! I had an awesome time and will more than likely be back next year!
Kudos to the organizers for putting on a great event. And a big thank you to the volunteers - they were awesome (particularly the ones at the far ends of the run course). I liked the 3 loop bike course. My only dislike was the horrendous truck and car traffic on Hwy 19. Lots of semis zoomed a bit too close for my comfort level. I also liked doing the run on the path vs. around the lake. The lake route is nice, but the cant on the road surface is tough on the feet.
Thanks for putting on an event that is welcoming to all!
Thanks for making my first ultra distance race a great experience, I am fully placing blame on you for this odd feeling that I think I want to do it again. The water was the perfect temperature and my swim as about 20 minutes faster than I anticipated! The bike was scenic and sugarloaf was overcome-able but I was 40 minutes over my projected time. And the moonlit jog with cheering spectators helped me pick up a half hour on my allocated run time to meet my overall goal and cross the finish line to some smiling faces that topped off the experience. I think both of my buddies that I conned into doing their first race were equally pleased as we couldn't stop talking about our 'fun' times the whole 10 hour ride home.
