Gatorman 3 mile swim

The La Jolla Rough Water Swim and Gatorman Swim were today. Julie and I and Tati all met down at the cove. They both did the LJRWS which is 1 mile and then we all did the Gatorman 3 mile swim. It was rough. A swell came in and the cove had breaking surf in it. We were delayed about an hour so it was nearing high tide. As well, it was quite windy blowing straight out from the cove to the pier. This made the return 1.5 miles back to the cove 13 minutes slower for me -- and that was with increased efforts and a guy who handles rough open water pretty well. Quite choppy and ample opportunity to sample the Pacific Ocean without trying. Yum! I heard over 100 people were rescued during the swim. Good day all around. Both gals had big weekends (120 mile ride Fri, 2.5hr runs Sat and 4 mile Open Water Swims Sun).
