I was so cold just standing there waiting to start my race at the Navesink River.  Then I heard someone say "On your mark...get set...GO!"  I took off.  I was in second place, but the first place person was older than me.  I tried my best, but I finished second.  I don't care though because my time was great.  I wore my new TYR Sleeveless Wetsuit which made me feel like a pig in a blanket.  I could barely breathe!  I also had trouble swimming the right way because the water was disgusting.  Even so, I'm glad I wore my wetsuit because if I didn't I would probably have turned into an ice cube!  I'm glad that was my first swim of the year.

P.S.  The water was so shallow that I could stand up the entire time!
