10 km open water: fighting the elements

I was looking for a new challenge for this season. Well, I got it! A fun adventure that I enjoyed, but unfortunately I did not accomplish. Pictures speak louder than words ...

About the battle with the elements, waves, cold, storms, silent lie in the water, be doubled. "I liked it but it was just not looking hard enough."

Due to the expected thunderstorm (and it indeed came) she was among the swimmers that couldn't complete the distance.

She's in training for the Ironman 2013
