First ever! Ironman competitor Kyle led me on this inaugural crossing. An eight mile bike over provided some muscle warming up as the water is on the cool side. You swim a rather leisurely pace as the distance is the challenge. From my training as a Navy rescue swimmer I knew this could be done, others do it all the time, don’t panic and enjoy the day. I’ll confess my use of a wetsuit, zoomers and hand paddles all aided; mostly my confidence. Total distance out and back is about one mile.
Then another eight mile bike ride home and later eight miles on the inline skates.
To top it all off a healthy home-made pizza!
