This morning Andrew and his co-worker Warren participated in the Santa Cruz Rough Water Swim. The "true" racers look down on those who wear wetsuits so please forgive Andrew's novice status. The race was a perfect mile swim around the Boardwalk pier. The best time was 16 minutes and Andrew came in around the 23 minute mark. Not bad for a wetsuit wearing swimmer!

Santa Cruz Rough Water Swim 2009

Great videos and pictures Shannon. I'm proud of you Andrew. Shannon, you and Blake are the BEST cheerleaders!
Thanks a million for taking photos and videos again. It was a lot of fun to do this and, of course, good experience for the triathlon in September.
The "of course" is that Andrew and I learnt the same lesson again---going for a warm-up swim would help a lot. Maybe we'll get past that and learn something else for the next event.
Studs.... both of them!
