L.O.S.T. Race

Lake Ontario is cruel.

I spent months getting ready; but was disappointed with a a time of 2hours and 4 minutes to swim 3.8km. I had done some open water swimming to get ready; but I just wasn't ready for the choppiness in Lake Ontario this morning. I should stop beating myself up over it, two people didn't even finish the race and I was the only non-athlete in attendance.

Still, I feel embarrassed. Both of my calves seized up within about 20m of the finish and I had to dog-paddle my way to the end and then had to be helped out of the water.
