On a Wing (Rib) and a Prayer – XTERRA Uwharrie Race Report

I donned a wetsuit in preparation for a 15 minute (or so) open water swim (as part of my pre-race brick). The suit felt quite snug which worried me a little. Sure enough, as soon as I took off swimming, it was EXTREMELY painful. Every couple of strokes I could feel a pop and a crackle (which I’m still trying to figure out) which resulted in a sharp pain. I hadn’t even gone 100 meters and I had to turn around to head back to the shore.
