Well here’s a recap of my big day on Sunday. Thanks all, for cheering me on live in Wisconsin! I didn’t mean to make this so long, so please skip whatever bores you… (Thanks for your understanding.) Overall I had a great day but it wasn’t without its challenges. The day began comfortably warm (around 70 degrees). The swim started at 7:00 a.m. and went pretty much as expected: a fight to stay away from the flailing arms of everyone around me. Because it was a mass start of about 2100 people there were always several people around me for the 2.4 miles, so I just continued to try to find open areas to navigate my way through the bodies. Happily, I didn’t get knocked around much and I finished the swim in about the time I projected, 1 hour and 1 minute, so I came out feeling pretty good, not too tired, and ready to get on the bike.
