Escape from Alcatraz

John Schwarten, a member of the Westport Swim Club swam the swim leg of the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon held last week. One caveat is that the bike and running legs were completed by his kids - a great family event! Read what John has to say:

~By John Schwarten

What a great event! Not being able to run (torn ACL) was of course a disappointment, but the swim was a blast. The race started with some waves and a strong tide that more than compensated for them. With over 1500 people on the boat, getting everyone off in less than 8 minutes made it look like lemmings (see youtube video). The anticipation and crowded conditions put adrenaline levels absolutely off the charts. This is the coolest race I have ever done. I cant wait until next year to do the whole thing.
