wandered around while waiting for the start. took the dog swimming while AdCo nicely went back to the car for my inhaler
  • 39m 25s
  • 1760 yards
  • 02m 14s / 100 yards

had a blast. focused on form and keeping a consistent effort. kicked it for the last 500 or so, happy to have gone sub-40. I was one of the few people there without a wetsuit though.

the super-fast winner of the 2 mile race passed me just before the finish.
