    Just saw your post. Did you go? I am interested in competing in more open water swims. 1 mile is a little short for me, but the race looks like it would be a fun way to kick off the New Year. Might give it a go in 2011 if the schedule permits.

    it was heaps of fun. and a very good looking college swim teams were also present. i placed 2nd in my age group and pretty high overall.

    it was also kind of short for Fran Crippen the Olympic 10k distance swimmer too. icon_smile.gif but he still did it. he won overall of course.

    there was a strong current-slow times, no jelly fish, clear water and temp was 75. it was warmer then outside temp.
