Hey All!

I was wondering if any other newbies would be OW swimming in Santa Monica area on Saturday morning. I am a new swimmer training for my first tri--and i'm going to be in town for the weekend. I don't want to miss a weekend of practice (I have a lot to do before i'm ready in 3 weeks haha)

I'm just trying to decide if #1 i should bother bring my wetsuit and #2 where good, safe places are to get in some distance.

Try 2nd St and Bay Shore in Long Beach instead. It's much safer and the waves and chop are minimal which is good for beginners.

I've been swimming at Belmont Shores in Long Beach every weekend and the water is perfect. Also, there are usually plenty of people swimming there throughout the day.

I first decided I was going to "do" a triathlon in 1994. It wasn't until 13 years later, in 2007 that I actually did. Why did it take me 13 years to get to the starting line? The swim!

Many people in the triathlon world think they need to just emulate Ian Thorpe to have a faster time, or have a similar stroke to Michael Phelps to cruise through the swim. Unfortunately...
