Marathon Swimmers Forum
Your 2013 Season
Lake Travis Relay solo swim completed. First in the solo division, 3rd OA. For right now, I'll just take another day or two off and let my beard rash heal. Then I'll look forward to next year.
It was a good year to be back into swimming. As recently as June of 2012, I was thinking about ultra marathon runs. Then, I got the swimming bug again. There is certainly less wear-and-tear on me than running.
I think my season is over so my list includes
Ocean City 9-miler
Swim the Suck
I was tempted to try Georgeville or Bust but I was worried about my shoulder holding up. Regretting missing it but looking to get back up to the Kingdom next year.
I recommend all of the events I did this year. Two inaugural events made for some great additions to the mid-Atlantic. Great seeing forum members and old friends.
Just finished up with my season and it was a blast! All events that involved swimming:
-John Daly 1 mile swim
-Stars and Stripes Aquathlon (1500m swim 5km run)
-Wayland 3 mile swim
-Mashpee 5km swim
-Brooklyn Bridge swim (1 mile)
-NYC Triathlon (Olympic)
-Governor's Island (2 miles)
-Wild Fish 2 mile swim
-Little Red Lighthouse Swim (10km with current)
-Bermuda Round The Sound (10km)
I don't want the season to be over!
! This is quite a swim repertoire!
Kudos and congrats to all of you.
