Alive!

Real race report to follow butttt...

I'm alive.

It took me about 10 minutes longer than I had hoped.

It was windy with a current that was tough to navigate (for me). I probably swam 3.5 miles instead.

My mouth is raw from the salt water and my stomach hurts from drinking it.

I took it very easy for loop #1 and picked it up for #2.

I had a mechanical - goggle issues, until I took them off and jammed them into my eye sockets. I looked like I got punched in the face but they stayed on.

Third place in age group, woohoo!

You are some sort of superwoman!! I might feel very intimidated and unworthy when we meet in May! Damn just to say you're swimming a 5K is awesome, let alone actually sign up, travel down to Miami, swim with a buttload of other psychos and swim in absolutely shitty conditions!! Are you crazy woman!!! And you came in 3rd! Crazy and GOOD!!!! You ROCK!
