Third Times A Charm


This year’s wasn’t that different from past years’ escapes (2007, 2008). I didn’t finish faster than last year, but I’m happy coming in at ~46 min.

A few things different about this year:
– I didn’t swim with the South End Row Club. Instead, I did the Escape from the Rock event.
– It was my first water start. In the past, we would jump from the boat and start swimming. Today, we jumped in, lined up behind kayaks, and then started with a blowhorn. Much more intense…
– My first year not swimming alone! Kahn blew my time out of the water, finishing in 37 min. Nice swim man. Let’s do it all over again.

Thanks Mike and Natalie for the support. Sad I missed you guys at the finish line… probably better you missed my heavy breathing and goofy, slightly oversized wetsuit.
