Trans Tahoe

July 20, 2014 § 1 Comment


6 swimmers.  one boat.  11 miles across lake tahoe.

i love this event so much.


even the ride in is beautiful (ignoring the 3 hours of traffic you inevitably hit in sactown when you leave SF at 3:30 on a friday).

This swim is a little bit different than running relays I’ve done in the past in that each leg swims for a set amount of time (in this case, 30 minutes) as opposed to a distance.  And you continue to rotate until you hit the finish line.  Simple, and kind of beautiful in the fact that nobody can really tell how fast you’re going (unless you really gain or lose ground to another nearby boat, though the lake is to big and people get pretty spread out that it’s not usually like a neck-in-neck race until the end.)

proper nutrition. key for peak performance. oh 21st amendment, how i missed you.

we finished in 4 hours 10 minutes(ish).  then we got to hang out in this for a while.


seriously.  the water was just incredible.
