Drove up to San Francisco today because I’m doing a big swim around Alcatraz tomorrow. I had a pre-race briefing over on the Presidio around 5 and me and Heidi walked there from our hotel in the Fisherman’s Wharf area… that walk turned out a little longer than intended! At least we found it, the google maps directions on my phone were a little dicey. The briefing was good and gave me a much better idea of what I’m in for tomorrow morning!

Afterwards we caught a ride back to where our hotel was from some super nice people from Rose Bowl Aquatics. I like Rose Bowlers and I seem to find them everywhere I go!

At the hotel I grabbed a cap and goggles and we ran down to Aquatic Park so I could get in a short swim just to get a feel for the water temperature and keep my shoulders loose. The water is 57ish which is perfect for me and I felt really good in the water. I did two laps of the buoy line before I hopped out.



I’ll see you guys tomorrow when I’m done finding out if I could break into and out of Alcatraz :)
