I might do it again. I was 1st M40-44 in 2017. I'm at a disadvantage here in Canada because I have to swim it SCM and convert to yards (I miss out on 20 extra turns). I did 5000m in 59:52 flipped and only got 5m in the last 8 seconds due to puking into the gutter.
Bo - How far are you from the US border??? Maybe come down and swim the hour challenge in a scy pool in Wash state??? You could prob get 90 to 100 yds more in the shorter pool. Great effort last year though, throwing up at the end is hard core. :)
