This is an old pic taken after my EC qualifier in GSL.
This morning met Josh out at the Marina and we did the Gridley Straight. When we got back to the red buoy we talked for a good 5 minutes and he took off to a meeting and I did another lap. On the way back I was daydreaming when I looked up and I was only 8 feet away from hitting that one stupid pylon that I'm usually on the lookout for. It was dead ahead and I almost ran right into it. Whew!
On both laps I went from channel pace to race pace about halfway back. I actually tried to break away from Josh on the first one, but he kept right up. Which was great cause he's gonna be my pacer for the EC trip next year. He's gotten alot faster this year.
It was nice today to not have an audience as I got out. I was able to get to my car, go take a quick rinse with the hose and get out of there and off to work before being late. Very nice swim. While I was swimming I was thinking about Evan's Catalina Channel crossing tomorrow. What an epic swim that is. Right up there with EC fame. He's got a top notch crew and weather permitting will be victorious!
Total Distance: 4.3 miles
