Hello fellow Open Water swimmers. A few friends of mine and I are doing an open water swim this Saturday at Ild Greenwich beach (in CT). We have to be at the beach by 6 am so we leave by 5 am from Queens (45 min drive). Win planning to swim for noire than an hour and I will be home before 8 am since I have to take care of kids while my wide foes to work. I know there is a memorial ride at CHP this Saturday so if anyone is interested in coming with us to OW I will drive you and your bike to CHP afterwards.
Thanks dude! You guys should come next time and just chill or get some ocean breeze. You can also bring your ipad or laptop and beach chair coz they have free wi-fi and strong signal you can get by the shore.
Nice doe! I watched the 2011 world championships(Kona) 2 days ago on nbcsports, that thing is super hardcore!! Swim, bike(112 miles), run(full marathon)!! I gonna need me some dope yo to finish it. ;D ;D But I saw an 81 yr old dude finish it in 16 hrs!! Holy... A woman(teacher 60 y/o) from USA who missed the cut off time by 4 seconds, man I cried that was really sad. Craig Alexander from Australia won it but he was cramping on the last 2 miles and had to stop several times to stretch, good thing he had a good lead.
Btw I might join you in that open swim, I'll just bring a life jacket. I want to do this tri one day and punish myself, I got to figure out if I can swim for 2.4 miles without a lifejacket.
