When did this happen, I missed that ?

He claimed a time and race number from Boston marathon last month. Someone looked up the racer and found it was a 52 year old, they also pulled a pic of the guy crossing the finish line. This troll posting here is in the 30-34 age group according to his profile.

Of coarse he never responded when people called him out on it.

Has he been banned?  It looks like some of his posts have been removed from threads.

I think that some folks have put him on their "Ignore User"  lists which would strip out some of his posts.

Originally posted by linkslefty I just didn't realize how different the open water would be. Grant it, it was crazy conditions, but my pool workouts are 2400-2800m. I've done a 1000m time trial in close to 18mins. This is purely a mental thing, right? Is it just a matter of getting out of my head?

Part of it is mental and part of it is learning to be comfortable in conditions other than a glassy pool.  It does not take much chop on open water to change the experience pretty dramatically.  Even a 6 inch chop into your face can cause problems with breathing if you are not used to it.  I have done a lot of open water swimming over the years in all kinds of conditions and one of the things that boosted my confidence was the ability to alter my breathing pattern and to be equally adept at breathing to either side.  It is much easier to breath to the opposite side of the waves or chop that are hitting you.  I practiced this in the pool for months by breathing to one side one length and then breathing to the other side on the return until it was very nature to breathe to either side.

As for not replying... I'm rarely on here as I spend the majority of my time on www.slowtwitch.com. When I saw that I "got called out" it was already too late to respond as you good detectives claim to know more than I do.

He's too busy doing an IM in 8:45, just as soon as he finds someone's bib number

He also said in another thread that he does PED's so that he can improve and qualify for Kona as an AG!

Originally posted by linkslefty Thanks for the quick responses as I'm obviously frantic for feedback, feeling very discouraged. Yes, I had a wetsuit. First time open water racing, and really ows for any distance. It was choppy with some white caps. There were a handful of people who had to be pulled out by boat in front of us. I have practiced some sighting. I may have gone out too fast. But my arms tired quick and when I got short of breath that's when I started to panic. Raleigh is supposed to be hot. Not sure how choppy, but prob not wetsuit legal, which adds to my impending panic.

If you start to get that panicky feeling, just pause for a second, gather yourself, reorient yourself and go.

Raleigh is likely to be hot and borderline wetsuit legal.  Most years there is not much chop but the first year was windy and choppy.  It's been cool all week and the Army Corps of Engineers has the current water temperature at 73 (http://epec.saw.usace.army.mil/dailyrep.txt).  WTC's wetsuit cutoff is 76.1 degrees Fahrenheit.

As I said, I was wrongfully taken off using a specific username. I followed all the rules so there is no reason to take me off. As I said, if and when my second username gets taken off, I'll just start another one.

If they want a legitimate reason to ban me, where I won't come back, change the rules.

I want to sincerely thank you all, well those who posted constructive advice anyway. I have a Oly distance aqua bike tomorrow that I plan to attempt and put these fears and bad experience behind me with. I'm nervous, but confident I can finish it.

I'll let you all know how it goes. Just over two weeks to Raleigh!

Good luck this weekend with the Aqua Bike!  Don't go out too fast, settle into your own pace and you'll do fine!

Wanted to provide a quick update for those of you who helped with advice and thoughts. The aquabike was a success (other than being slow on the bike). The swim was a mass start, about 40 people, so not caring about my time I let most everyone go in front and brought up the rear. The water was chilly, but I just told myself to start slow and keep my heart rate and breathing down. It was a two loop 750m course, and I got settled in about 400m or so into the swim. I ended up bumping around a little because even at a slow cadence, I still passed half the field. After the first lap I was feeling much more confident and passed a few more people, and came out of the water in the upper 3rd part of the group. Somewhere around 28 minutes and change.

Needless to say I'm feeling much more confident for Raleigh in 10 days, though still hoping for a wetsuit legal race. Thank you again for all the encouragement and advice!

Told you a race in "normal" conditions would be a cinch for you

The conditions for the event in your original post were dreadful.
