The AOWS Spring 2013 series kicked off at Tempe Town Lake on Sunday, April 7. The 4500 meter distance (2.79 mi) was 6 laps around the course. By the fifth lap, I had figured out where the buoys were located. I had hoped to finish in under 2 hours (20 min/lap) but actually did 1:28:46--very steady 14-15 minute laps. Finished 10th male masters, 27/43 overall. Really, really nice day in the water. All results here.
