Well, Well, Well,

I swam today and did the mile swim in 36 minutes and 59 seconds, that’s the unofficial time, from my stopwatch. My official time will probably be a few seconds less because I started timing after the starting “horn” and stopped after I had crossed the finish line and stood up.
And guess what else? I won an airline ticket in the random prize drawing at the end. I can go anywhere Cayman Airways goes, free! It’s the first time I ever won an expensive prize like that, ever in my life. (Once I won a transistor radio worth about $10 and once a submarine ride worth about $35 and that is it.)
There were 361 swimmers, compared to over 500 last year. But this year, there’s less people on the island.
The fastest was 13 minutes and a few seconds! I can’t even do a half mile in 13 minutes. The winner was 15 seconds shy of the course record. In the past 8 years, I have swam in 7 of the Flowers Mile Swims.
Anyway it was a pretty good day.
