Air Temperature: 59*-60* + windy
Water Temperature: 70’s Water conditions: Choppy Place: 3rd in age group & 14th overallOther Notes: This was a fun race! When I swam this race last year I actually got sun burnt, so I didn’t expect it to be so chilly this year. The water conditions were tougher this time around too but I like a good challenge! The race benefited the Heart Institute at Children’s Hospital of UPMC and all of the participants combined raised more than $8,000! I am so happy that I participated in such a special event :).
