Chesapeake Bay Swim- 1 Mile
So like I said, good thing I was wearing a wetsuit.
Wave 3, green caps jumped into the mix.
Oh, and as usual, my mom was around to take these pictures for me. She had started on the other side of the bridge with my dad, said good luck to him, and managed to run into me out of so many people very easily on this side before the race! So once I had washed off a bit and changed out of my suit, we hung out in the shade (since it was hooootttt) waiting for the 4.4 milers to arrive.
We got out of the shade long enough to watch the winner come in. He was flying! I was so impressed, it was so cool to watch! So then we went back into the shade, and around when we thought Dad would finish, headed over to the fence to watch the finishers coming in.
We finally saw him come in, recognized his stroke, but also knew he would stand up as soon as he could (unlike me, who also refuses to touch the bottom unless I can't physically swim anymore because it's too shallow). He picked us out of the huge crowd, waved, and walked up the finish line!
After he was rinsed off a little as well, Mom took our picture together.
