Couldn't shake the main group today, so I came out of the water with a bit more company around me

Great swim today, but with John Kenny and Ian King in the race, I had a good distance to make up.

Heading in for the run. John was just up ahead of me at this point, and I was more or less biding my time until I could lace up the sneakers.

Congratulating Will Christian on a well earned win. He always brings his best, and he pushes me every time out.

100 yards of knee-deep water for the start and the finish made for a tiring swim
