Chuck basically updated everyone on the swim this morning, but I am proud to say that I did not scream, swear, kick, or attempt to run the other direction upon entering the water! It also did not take me an unreasonable amount of time to get into the water. Swimming was definitely cold and a bit difficult considering I had no goggles (must remember those next time), but I'm happy to say that I'm no longer afraid of the cold water. I think that I may even be able to jump off the ferry at Alcatraz island and may not need someone to shove me off.
Progress people, progress!!!
