P2P 2013

The Pier to Pub has be run and won. Not by me, but, what a great time I had.

This was my second entry and it was just great.  Relaxed before the race. Had a warm up before my wave.
Entered into the Super Vets group : 60 ~ 69.

My time was 28:06  (1.2Km).  Nearly a minute better than last year.  What surprised me was that I was able to just keep swimming.  There was no fatigue during the race.  Tired at the end though.  A lot to do with the training during the year I suspect.
Held my ground (position) during the race and was not intimidated by the other swimmers.  So I banged and crashed my way to the finish line.  BTW there were almost 300 in my swim wave and 5000 over the day.
