My lips and tongue were really starting to swell up. But my shoulder was feeling just fine. We got past the marina on the way back. I was really getting some serious chaffing going on downstairs. Mental note: Next time, wear a jammer, not a speedo in GSL.
Marcia Cleveland had a shirt made up a while back for crazies like me. I bought one a while back, but never have worn it. Today I actually tried it out and deserve to wear it. Not a big deal since there aren't other swimmers or boaters in the area. It kept Jacob amused the rest of the way! It sure paid off cause without a suit, there was no painful chaffing.
When we got close to the finish I slipped back in to my suit and waded back to the starting point. The GPS read that it was just over 4 1/4 miles and just over 2 hours. Actual swim distance was right around 4 miles with 1/4 mile in walking along side the boat towards Saltair before deciding to just turn around and swim back.
Jacob and I climbed the rock.
What an enjoyable swim!
