Lots of traffic and manatees as mike calls the breast strokers. Got kicked hard in the left triceps and now have a bruise - swam over a couple of people trying to get some open water...good swim for me considering, even smiled at photographer as I got out of the water
What would you do differently?:

not much except maybe try to start closer to the front to get away from the slower, uncomfortable swimmers

Swam hard and ran into transition so was definitely winded. Risa pulled chip off my ankle. Nice hand off to Sarah for her bike ride.

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!
