Lake Pleasant Open Water Swim 3000m

Lake Pleasant on April 2, 1:01:35.  Water was cold, but not too cold; wetsuit legal.  The weather was good, but not great; windy with some chop, but my time was perfectly acceptable.  Finished 8/11 men's masters, 11/18 all men (with 4 DNF, 11/22).  Would have been first in my age group if the swim had age group awards.  In the photo on the left, I'm told I"m the swimmer in front.  On the right, that's me struggling out of the water after the finish, less than gracefully.  Nice day, good swim, pretty happy with my time, and finished 20 seconds ahead of the considerably younger guy in the Speedo.
