Yes, well, I would have quit after 4x2012, but a bunch of DC Tri folks were there, and they knew of my declaration to do 10k. Thanks for the support :).
(seriously, though that's a long way to swim)
Who's in for this year??
Has anyone confirmed with the Terrapin masters that this event is going on? Their website doesn't appear to have been updated since last year's swim.
It's on. I'll be there for 10k - http://www.terrapinmasters.org/NY2013.htm
I'll echo what vkanders said. I did the Swim In The New Year remotely, and I went to the pool intending to swim 2x2013 or maybe 3x2013 if I was feeling kindof crazy. About midway thru the third 2013, I said to myself (while underwater!), "What the heck... other DC Triclubbers are out there going the distance... if they can do it, I can do it!"... so I decided to man up and go for a 4th and 5th 2013. I've never swam that far before... it felt weird to walk on dry land again. Thanks for the inspiration!
