The most recent MSP email has a link for the HarborFest Swim (National Harbor, Maryland), but I'm only seeing 2013 dates... is there a new link or am I doing something wrong?

Maybe 3, more likely 2.4, praying for no rain, begging for no lightning.

I was not in town last weekend, so now I can participate! Registered for the 5k too! Boo on the not-free t-shirts.

My swim time and place in the posted results (1.2 mile swim) appear to be wildly off what I actually swam (my watch said 34 minutes and change, while the results page lists 41 minutes). Has anyone else noticed a discrepancy in their self-timed and posted results?

Yeah... mine is off by a couple of minutes. I think what happened is that my timers waited until I climbed the ladder and got on the deck to record my time. However, I had actually cooled off in the water for about two minutes before climbing out.

I think that's the discrepancy in some cases...

Now that you mentioned it, I see that my time is off by just over five minutes (2.4 mile swim). And I stopped my watch when I got to the ladder and climbed out.

I guess they shouldn't have rushed posting the results.

Yeah...my time was listed as 5 min faster than my watch. And I'm positive I didn't win the 5 k race. Without timing chips it's all very suspect.
