Snake Bite Training 2010

Today was an awesome day for swim training. There was a nice turn out of swimmers and kayakers.

The course was a 200 out and back for a total distance of 400 yards.

Enjoying some rest after the swim.

Some did the course more than once.

The swim exit.

Some left right after swimming, and some went out on the bike and run courses. The post race party pavilion is seen in the background.

All in all, it was a great training day and some good ole triathlon comraderie. Looking forward to seeing more participants during the next training days in 2 weeks!
