Thankful to actually race

This was the first 70.3 race to be held in TX so I signed up. It is a challenging course with warm water, choppy swim and rolling bike and run. The bike course was not closed to traffic although there were police at one of the intersections. The run course could have been better marked, there was no signage to indicate the turnaround point and the map wasn't clear. I was told to keep running straight by the volunteer working at the aid station exactly where I was supposed to turn around; everyone was confused and ran different distances. The aid stations were supposed to have energy gels but didn't, however they did hand out ice cold waters at one stop which was so appreciative on a hot, humid day. The race director was very responsive to questions in the days leading up to the race.
