Swimming in Triathlons: a contact sport

I did two sprint triathlons this past summer.  This is a recap of the swim leg of the first race that I did with my buddy Ann Marie.

 The morning of: we all got up bright and early.  After a hearty breakfast we headed downstairs to rack our bikes and warm up (staying at the site of the race is fabulous!)  Ann Marie and I suited up and headed to the water.  We targeted a pole as our distance marker. 

The water was c-c-c-cold but clear and beautiful.  We met at the post and then headed back to shore.  I looked up for Ann Marie but couldn't find her!

TriGuy keenly observed the whole thing.

Heh.

I felt I'd had a successful warm-up,  so I was in it to win it hopefully (not) finish (last).

Since Ann Marie is waaay younger than me, we were in different waves.  She was off first and was a tad nervous.

 But, she took off and swam like a champ!

 Then it was my turn!
