The day before Bri and I put on an open water clinic and that was well received. We get to teach people to dive through the waves and body surf, which is hellacool.
After the clinic I ran into Wilmington to invest in a new stand up paddleboard (SUP). This is money well spent as we will use this for additional water patrol/safety during our swims and aquathons. But it will also be fun.
During the race I felt good went hard and ran pretty fast on both splits. 5th overall and 1st Masters. Here are a couple pictures.
I false started a bit
This cop was making fun of my haircut
Combined age = 130
Hard to believe I am in the old guy race now, but I still feel good! The recovery after a hard race like this does take longer than 10 years ago, that is for sure.
Next up is the Old School Aquathon #2 at Vista Point, check it out. The race is a 300 meter swim then 1 mile run, done 3 times.
