Hi Phil,

I am in the car on my phone and want to write you and Julie and the whole team a book of thank you’s but my thumbs would cramp and typos would be galore, so I will do my best being concise.

Thank you for dreaming of and executing an amazing day. I keep thinking of everything I loved from the start of the day as an athlete. Athlete food table, coffee, ample bathrooms, so many volunteers, and more. The SEAL presence pre race started the day in the right direction, bag piper was a solid touch and the timing system, hooray! The print out even better!

We got lucky at the last minute with our kayaker not wanting to do 10miles and we ended up with a GEM named Ann. We also ended up stealing a NEMS boat in the confusion of our start and the Locks were more than impressive. The course map on board was referenced consistently throughout the day. Buoys were great too!

Get some rest and enjoy the success of the event!
