May 17th, 2010 – Iron Girl 2010 event this past weekend at Loews Lake las Vegas, Henderson, Nevada appears to have been a big success and fun. We were spending a staycation at Loews this weekend and just happened on the event. This is the thrid year for this event at Loews. From what I saw the event was well-organized and ran like clock work for those involved. It helps to have great corporate sponsors behind you so you can do it right and safely.
During the two days we were there we met many great people some with interesting stories about why they were competing. Many of the locals train for this event on the River Mountains Loop Trail for the run and bike portions of the triathlon. I have also been advised that Loews is developing a triathlon training program for future upcoming events in the area and also at Lake Las Vegas later this year. ..more on this later.
As far as our stay at Loews it was an outstanding experience…it is one of Henderson’s and Southern Nevada’s best kept secrets. Try it, you will like it.
