Pre-race routine:

There are 4,224 yards in a full ironman swim of 2.4 miles
There are 2,116 yards in a half ironman swim of 1.2 miles

There are 3,520 yards in this 2 mile open water (non wetsuit swim)
  • 54m 16s
  • 3520 yards
  • 01m 32s / 100 yards

This is a very competitive race, meaning, not many triathletes. Most people did the swim w/o wetsuits, I did mine along with the other triathletes (most of them), in my wetsuit. This was a test for me for Ironman. It was a big confidence builder as I really had no problem in the swim, and felt like I was relaxed and had plenty of energy the whole way.

Nice swim.  54 for a 2 miler is a pretty darn good time
