After deciding to start the "Josh Green Loop Virtual Open Water Race", I figured I'd set the standard. I went as fast as I could. I was aiming for under 20 minutes and got 18:50. The water was very warm. I'm guessing it was in the high 70's or even low 80's. I was happy with that time. But I don't think it will last very long. It could easily be beaten.
Per the rules, here is the video/pics of my entry:
Total Miles: .7 in 18:50
I ordered the trophy that accompanies this ongoing virtual race. Should get here in about a week or so. I'm actually hoping people try to beat this record.
