PR/Fastest 5k Swim!

I swam my fastest 5k ever today!

It was a most perfect morning for an open water swim race/event.  I had signed up for the 5k Swim to the Moon with the intent of using it as a sort of taper distance before next week's Swim Around Mackinac Island.  My swimming has been coming along nicely, and I've been feeling good about training over the last 3 weeks or so.  This is a race and distance I did the very first year they had it.  And have volunteered for it several other times.  For a while, 1:45 had been a goal time.  As soon as I hit the water, I felt strong and fast (for me).  I knew I was doing well and it just seemed like I was motoring by other swimmers.  My tangents between buoys were pretty solid.  All was good!  Stopping my watch right away crossing the finish line and seeing 1:44:04 was quite the thrill!  Ended up 3rd overall wetsuit division, and 1st in AG.  Not to shabby for a FOBS (Fat, Old, Bald and Slow)...
