Looks super fun and awesome, right!?! And you're thinking that you need to be a part of this, right!?!
Me too! So...
Are there any Trail Monsters out there who want to swim in their running shoes!?!
Who want to swim out into the briny deep and run across the islands of Casco Bay all while being tethered together!?!
Come on, don't leave me hangin'...
I'm looking at the Long Course, but I'd consider the short course as well (It's shorter, and cheaper, but potentially less epic.)
Admittedly, this race is a bit on the pricey side.
I'm hoping to be averaging 8.5min/mile on the runs and 25min/mile on the swims. But I honestly have no idea what to expect and to be a good teammate, I'm okay going a bit slower and/or pushing a bit faster.
tentatively, while I don't presume to be a coach, if your on the fence and swimming's your hold up, I'd be happy to offer some training assistance (even though I feel kind of ridiculous typing that)
So, SwimRun anyone?
