There are many different opinions about how to prepare for the "big swim". There were no pre-race nerves from 2 of the Aquaholics more experienced swimmers. Well done to Ken who completed his 29th Pier to Pub race. When asked about his chances before the race he thought that he would keep going until he'd got the 40th under his belt. Ros' pre-race preparation involved kicking back and reading the paper.
Ros' strategy paid off with a terrific 3rd place in her age group. Maree (pictured below) and Donna also came in third in their respective age groups. Well done! Unfortunately the men were hopeless and couldn't buy a place. Aquaholics will need to look at their recruitment plan for next year. Looking at the pic of Mark and Michael they obviously need to spend more time in the gym and less in the cafe-LOL. Actually, they both did really well with times around 16 minutes. To all the other swimmers who were camera shy it's your turn next year.
