Total Time = 1h 24m 49s
Overall Rank = 507/864
Age Group = 35-37
Age Group Rank = 29/49
Pre-race routine:

Kashi Waffle on the way to downtown. Parked at Ft DeRussey and walked t othe start.
Event warmup:

Swam about 4-600m prior to the start.
  • 1h 24m 49s
  • 3840 meters
  • 02m 13s / 100 meters

The currents really made the difference. You could feel the waves pushing you along. Without them I would have been way slower than I was. Fin division this year was added and it is a decent idea on the whole. I think they need to make sure that they understand to be more careful and courteous to the non-fin swimmers. They are faster and catch up to the previous heat and they can cut across many swimmers quickly forcing us to pull up and avoid them.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around picked up the shirt etc... stretched some.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Absolute training time. Only have swum this distance three times this year. once in the pool and twice in races.

Event comments:

I always wish they would have a snack or fruit at the finish. They did have gatorade.
