Placed 2nd in my age group out of 25. 2.4 miles in the river in Charleston in 42.38. Pleased with the swim. I am not used to getting hit and run into during the start but once I got into pace it wasn't too bad.

After the drive home I proceeded to do a leg workout that I am still feeling today.

Today's workout was tough. Need an easy day tomorrow.

    Great first OW race in Charleston Donna. Hope you enjoyed it and feel like doing more. It's so much different from racing in the pool, some good and some not so, but a new challenge.

    My next open water is the Waikiki Rough Water Swim in September. It is mostly a vacation but I make all of my vacations SwimCations!
