    Some of those look better than tracing the Noblesville course 5 times. Boston Light Swim looks awesome, but kind of a bummer you have to arrange your own MOTOR boat.

    Hi!! Just happened to stumble across your site here….looks great!! I too will be doing Tampa swim solo this year (did 2 person relay last year–a good swim!!) I live in S. FL so will also prob do Miami swim (even though I agree with you about poor hospitality—one of my least favorite races).
    Very cool you got into MIMS!! On my list for next year….
    Looking forward to meeting you in Tampa!!
    Best, Michelle
