Did Not Finish
I have a lot to learn about ocean swimming. I veered off course badly on the way out. Coming back in was much better since I picked out the hotel as my mark. I felt strong throughout the entire swim.
Wind was rather calm in the first 10 miles of the bike. At the bridge it picked up. I began to cramp in my calves at mile 20. I had to stop once before that at mile 15 or so to stretch them and they felt fine afterwards until mile 20. I rode through it until the turn around and had to stretch them again. They were locking up (the right one badly) and it was becoming too painful.
At the aid station mile 40 I stopped to wee wee and that was it. I was done.
I tried my best. I tried my best.
I love you Amanda. I miss you. See you Tuesday.
Thanks Susan and everyone else who hollered for me on the bike course.
I am ok, but disappointed in myself.
