2010 Lonestar Olympic Distance Race Report by Donna Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Mon 26 Apr 2010 8:19am So where do I start?  My weekend started Thursday night with packet pickup.  Seems like choosing to go Thursday was the best bet.  Lines and wait time on Friday were terrible from all the frustrated texts I was receiving from friends who were also competing.
