As I packed my race gear for Galveston I was still unsure what the weekend would be like for me. If it was windy, I wasn't going to race. I was also a little anxious about the swim, hoping I'd be able to swim in clear water and protect myself from getting kicked. But if I did 'race' I was going out there to have fun, not to worry about pace, just planning to have a nice aerobic workout with a bunch of friends.
Some of the amazing J&A guys after finishing the half. Note: I spent about 30min next to the white cooler in the backround, that's where the ice pops were kept.
