I'm going to do a Marathon... and not bother to taper

For those that know me well….  The mere fact that I’m signing up for a swimming race is I’m sure amusing…

But…  with a 2.4 mi swim coming up at GFT…  Our tri club’s annual open water swimming race should be good practice….  Especially followed up by a 4 hour ride.

The deets:
Saturday, August 13, 2011
8:00 am
Registration and Finish:  5th Avenue North, Jacksonville Beach, FL

1.25 Mile Swim   or     2.5 Mile Swim
1. Each swimmer must wear a swim cap. These will be provided.
2. Swimmers may not touch the ocean bottom.
3. No swim aids (fins, paddles, etc.) will be allowed.
