|We started between the bridge and someone's house. Thank|
you to those homeowners who allowed us access to the water
through your backyard!
|I'd like to say I was intentionally looking up to Jayne for|
this picture, as I can't believe how far over I am rotated.
All I can think is I was doing everything I could to keep from
swallowing even more water. That first mouthful didn't taste
I also need to figure out my contact situation. Just like at Lake Stevens, everything in my left field of vision appeared blurry. I asked my classmate, Kari Budd, (who, by the way, finished 17th overall) if she could see it. Nope. Nothing there. And then it hit me: Look in your goggles! Sure enough. I know my friends had tried to explain that was a stupid place to store it in Lake Stevens, but apparently I decided to do the same here. It was tucked securely onto the lens of my goggles. Brilliant.
