Event comments:

i came into this race thinking i was goin to do horribly on the swim first off. cause i suffered greatly in my first tri this yr. 500 yd. open water. i stunk it up badly. then i thought if i made it out of the water fine id be good to go. sure enough once i round that last buoy i knew i was home free.
