“Wow! What a great organized race it was today. Hard to believe it was the inaugural race in Lakewood. Hats off to the race director, the Army, the police and all the volunteers. The motorcycle club was also great helping with traffics. I felt very safe in the water and on the road. This was my first Tri, but I have done dozens of other races. This was by far the best directed race I have ever been in. I look forward to doing it next year!” – John, Puyallup
