I had an x-ray and then the Dr came in to tell me that it was broke, my heart hit the floor. I have a huge swim coming up and now I was screwed. as she set up everything to but me in a cast I started to plead with her. I told her that I had a qualifying swim next month for the English Channel and that this was going to make it so I couldn't swim. With all my rambling and probably crying she said that she could splint it and wrap it so I could swim. I asked her how long before I could swim and she said to tape it up and try in 4 to 5 days that if it hurt to wait a few more. In my mind I heard 2 to 3 days and tape the shit out of it. She got it wrapped up and showed my how to tape it and said good luck at the English Channel. I got back home and told Chandra what had happened, this was my first swim without here there so I told her it was her fault and laughed. So it looks like I will have a few days off and be back in the water on Wednesday. I also realized this morning how bad my right shoulder hurt. I know it was because I was basically swimming with one arm. so Ice and Ibuprofen and then swim in 2 days.
This race as always with any race the Utah Open Water Group puts on was very well put together safety craft was allover the place and the people were great to be around. I am getting spoiled by the great races we have here in Utah! Special thanks to Jim Hubbard, Gordon Gridley, Josh Green and there wives for letting them put these things on.
at the start with all the 10 mile swimmers
