3.5 mile swim

This morning I had one of those awesome, "Holy crap! I can't believe I just did that!" moments. I swam, in open water in Foster City, a 3.5 mile circuit. That's further than a 5K run, but in the water. It's the longest swim I have ever done. By a mile.

To put it into perspective, the swim from Alcatraz to SF is 1.25 miles. The swim portion of the Kona Iron Man is 2.1 miles. 3.5 miles is a long, long way.

Big day. Feeling great! Got to watch the sunrise on the water through misty goggles. So cool!
