The trials and tribulations of open water swimming in the Ocean Games nine-mile event where conditions can and will change abruptly, and I had to deal with the fallout of not being prepared for very cold water.

Everything hurts today. It's that good kind of hurt. The kind of overall pain that lets me know I pushed myself through something unusually difficult yesterday.

And that's because I did. Yesterday I did my longest-ever open-water swim. And it was my first solo open-water swim in Lake Erie. It wasn't completely "solo," but I'll explain in a moment.
