  • Comments: Really fun race! Just what I needed to give me confidence for IMNC 70.3. I am a terrible swimmer, so I was happy to be back of middle of the pack! I felt very composed this race, despite that it was the longest I have ever swam in open water, my first open water race in a wetsuit, and my first open water swim in salt water! At the beginning of the race, I kind of hurt myself by waiting 10-20 seconds to start for people to get ahead. I should have just started with the group. The start is a mass start.. so everybody just wades in the water until told otherwise. I also had some difficulty sighting. This is just something that I will need to work on. We were told that there would be no current, but this was not the case in my opinion! The current felt strong to me! At one point, I was having to swim against the current to get back on track, and it was very stressful. Also, I almost ran into a sign in the water because the current kept pulling me despite that I was just wading haha.
