For any female cows, Barb's Race is a great way to enter the field of Half Ironman.  It is the only all women's Half Ironman.  It is held the same day as the Full Vineman, so the course is pretty much open for the full ironman time, ie no time pressure, you can just enjoy the process and learn from it.
I finished the race, not quite last, but I learned a lot and now I can focus on being alittle faster.
it was about the most perfect day
I don't think the temp got over 80
The swim is out and back in the Russian River at Johnson's Beach in Guerneville.
The ride is incredibly beautiful through the wine country to Windsor High School.  The Full Vineman does it twice.
Chalk Hill is much easier than Cantelow....
The run is out and back from the high school with a 2nd half loop.  The Full Vineman folks have to go out and back 3 times.
The race was well run.  Lots and lots of water at all stations.
The folks doing the race were fabulous, very supportive along the way.  You never got lonely.
I plan on doing it again next year and hope there will be more Mad Cows.
Parking can be a problem if you don't get there early.  I was told parking was no problem, but I think the race is more and more popular.  I got there at 715am and got the last spot in the parking lot.
There was a long wait for the bus at the end that takes you back to Guernville, over an hour.
All in all it was great and I highly recommend it.
