We walked up to the lake to see an army of kayak's. Floating and waiting. You could feel the anticipation, anxiety and excitement. Here is the start of the race. It gave me goose bumps watching. I can't even imagine how cold the water was!
The mist is from the swimmers hauling ass. And if you stared at them without blinking their arms turned into black fish leaping in and out of the water.The black fish swim upstream.
To stick with the water theme - a sea of bikes.
