The first of several events at this venue today. Nice swim on a well marked course. Warm water had me wishing I went without a wetsuit. Lots of kids out from the Mission Viejo Swim Club to show us old dudes how it's supposed to be done.

Warm down:

Hustle to my car, strip down, and get ready for 5K run.

The Mission Viejo kids were pretty cute. Of course...according to the results, I was beat by an 8-year old! D'oh!

Congrats on the 2nd Place Medal! Woo hoo!

Nice swim Xan. It would have been cool to meet up with some other "old" dudes. The MV kids were really hauling. Great to see I just wish I didn't have quite as good a seat for it all. Great swim and congratulations on the hardware.
