Hurricane Man swim 2010

I didn't realize that the Hurricane Man 2.4 mile swim is being held this Saturday morning, hosted by St Pete Masters; coincidentally we will be in town for Bri's induction into her high school athletic hall of fame. The Hurricane Man has been around since the mid 1990s, it is a great event in the Gulf of Mexico, finishing at the Hurricane restaurant in Pass-a-Grille (as an aside, the finish is right across the street from where we held our 2009 winter training camp).

I might still have the M25-29 age group record of 48:34 (no wetsuit, either) or somewhere around there, I was swimming quite a bit when I lived in Miami in 1997-1998.

So anyway, I have at least one standalone open water swim I can attend this spring, I am psyched and will go as hard as my fitness will allow. Might be sub-55 if conditions are decent.

The next open water swim we will do is the Ocean City Masters Swim on July 17, then I might make it to the Pier 2 Pier swim in Wrightsville Beach in September.
