I swam at Lucky's Lake on Labor Day three days earlier and found out later she was one of the many Olympians who swam by me (very quickly) on my second lap. Today, the children started first and then the adults on a two lap 1200 meter swim followed by a 5k run. With a race on Saturday, I took it easy and only did one lap and found the Olympians exiting the water with me. However, they did TWO laps to my one! Everyone took off down the trail for the two lap run with the Olympians setting the pace. Gwen finished in a dead heat with two Australians, Emma Moffat and Charlotte Mcshane alongside.
Gwen and the others signed autographs and posed for photos in the next hour and everyone really enjoyed the experience. I also got to meet Charlotte Mcshane, an Australian team member who is originally from Scotland What a great group of people!
