Felt great on the swim very, relaxed. May be too much. Got jammed up between a couple of people had to "sprint" to get by them. Took a little to get my breathing calmed down. Was nice to actually pass people on the swim.

Event comments:

My best race ever. It's number 5. Very, happy with the swim was able to freestyle the entire race. At the end of the run I noticed my right shoes was full of blood. Must have cut my toe at the swim finish. Three good slice in my big toe.
