Carol Conquers The 5K In The Bay: July 2006

Happy, Proud, and Strong
What could be better after finishing your first 5K in the Bay

5K -- Now that's an OWS! (Open Water Swim). Congratulations Carol on your awesome 2nd place finish in your age group. Carol said "I came in 33rd out of 38swimmers -- not too shabby for my first attempt! Next year I'll swim it as a race!" We'll be waiting.

Here's more of what Carol had to say about her swim in a recent email: "Photographic evidence attached! Note the head-down,-elbow-high,-feet-not-breaking-the-water form!" (Editors Note: See the 4th picture).
