This is the second race that I have been to in the past month and I have come to the conclusion that open water swimming is definitely an art. My husband Shane has recently become addicted to open water swim races, extremely LONG open water swim races. I love watching the events and am truly inspired by the athletes that compete in them. Shane has competed in both a 5k and a 3k swim. SO.. if you haven't been to one of these things before- you definitely should!
