Swimming, Lake Minnetonka, 8 miles in. July 26, 2014

Yesterday I swam the 10 mile swim: the 2014 10-Mile USMS Open Water National Championship in Lake Minnetonka, MN. It was a great swim on a beautiful morning. There were ugly moments, and there were transcendently beautiful moments. It was the swim I had trained for; I was ready for it and it did not surprise me.

I will write a proper blog post about it with more photos when I get home, but that will be a few days from now, so I thought I would post to say that I am alive and happy and that I did it with a lot of help from my friends.

My official time: 5:03.46.
