There's an open water swimming program in our town. They have 3 1500 M swims this season in the James River designed to help triathletes prepare for open water swims with a mass start, timing chips and buoys. It was a great day. Beautiful weather, fun people and a great swim. It was no speed record due to the current, but I drafted off my friend, M for part of the first loop which was fun. She did lots of work... but she beat me by a minute anyway.
After the swim, we enjoyed french toast, sausage, fresh fruit and mimosas. Perfect!
