<p>it was my 5th year at this 8.2 mile cold open water swim race and I think it was the hardest yet.  I wrote it up here: <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Claudia-Rose-Open-Water-Swimmer/133449120052043?ref=ts" target="_blank">http://www.facebook.com/pages/Claudia-Rose-Open-Water-Swimmer/133449120052043?ref=ts</a></p>

<p><span style="font-size:8pt;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:arial, sans-serif;">to add to my collection of critter related minor woes I seem to have collected a lot of nemotocyst (baby jellyfish) stings or "sea bather's eruption" even though its not "tropical waters" so here I am wiht sting ray barb, broken nose and little welts all over feeling silly since none is serious but I'm tired of it. Since my birthday is about here, i hope to have less of these next year and a generally injury free year would be great! </span></span></span></p>

<p>I don't know how you can handle the cold water.  Crazy.  Do you ever get the panicy feeling still, or is that just a distant memory at this point?  Or did you never experience it to begin with?  Cold water just freaks me out for some reason.</p>
