    You did hear a cannon about 15 seconds after he yelled Go Go Go! :) I figure someone had trouble reloading the cannon or something…

    Luv U!

    I can assure you, as a blue swim cap wearer, it was the most brutal swim I’ve ever been in. I got my ass kicked, and like you, really just wanted it to be over for about the first 15 minutes. I think a large part of the problem was the broken cannon. As 7am arrived and then passed, people started to bunch up and push forward (more than usual), and any gaps that were there, got filled with bodies. So, when Mike screamed “GO GO GO” there was no room to move and it was just a fist fight from the start…I’m typically used to having at least some room to move, but this time? None.

    My swim was brutal too . . . for the opposite reason. :-) Compare your lava fields bike photo to my lava fields bike photo on my blog; it’s like two different races!

    I look forward to our both re-qualifying and having better races in Kona.
