In the news

Joe Miller from the News and Observer did a nice write up on the Triangle Open Water Swim Series today. You can read the article here.

broken brick

Jerry, Bri and I had a good broken brick this morning. Bri was able to play a bit of hooky. We did 3 x 13 mile bike, 2 mile run, faster each round. On the 2nd round Bri and Jerry ran 6:30 pace while I was a more pedestrian 7:15. On the final round we all worked the bike and then ran 1 mile fast - Bri about 5:50, Jerry around 6, and me around 6:20.

It looks like our mini-cold snap is ending which I am pretty happy about.

Look for an article about the Triangle Open Water Swim Series in the News and Observer on Sunday, April 12. Our first race is on April 18. Bring a wetsuit!

open water swims

Since we've got the master's team building up and a swim DVD in the works, I'm slowly becoming more interested in promoting and entering (not particularly racing just yet) open water swims. Here are a couple upcoming that I may do:

Pier 2 Pier swim in Wrightsville Beach, NC on September 13
Daiquiri Deck Tropical Splash 5k, 3k, 1k on October 4

A couple in Virginia that look good but I won't make it to:
Lake Montclair open water swim on September 6
Smith Mountain Lake Open Water Swim on September 20-21
