For those of you considering doing the race, here is some great advice from an unlikely source:
Years ago, during my last long-distance swim (across Long Island Sound… cold water, jellyfish, the whole nine yards), the competitiveness was pretty thick. On the boat to the starting line, there were hundreds of swimmers, stretching, bragging, prancing and working themselves up. By the time we hit the water, everyone was swimming someone else’s race. The start was an explosion of ego and adrenaline. Twenty minutes later, half the field was exhausted, with three hours left to go.
Finally, if you can’t run the race that day but you still want to part of the fun, we could really use your help at the post-race MDSoF booth helping racers stretch out. Contact Susan and Saul if you want to help.
