That's just crazy. The Gulf of Mexico is down to 71 here, and we're done swimming in it for this year. We're lightweight Floridians!

Close to 40% are women including my wife. She finished @ 16 hours. Not bad for 50 years young.

That water is treated with that special chemical that turns the water blue when someone pees in it!

Congrats to your wife, that's awesome! I'm working on doing one hopefully in the next couple of years.

I could never, not in a million years of training, finish something like that. I'd drown on the swim, and for those here that know me... know I am a strong swimmer.

Even a blind man can do it. The two must be tethered through the event. They finished in the 16 hour also.

I've done it twice. I was supposed to be there again this year but I hurt myself. I really love PCB as a venue for Ironman.

Congrats to your wife.
