There was only one pro at the race, young Vanina Walsh from KM boards. Still, pretty cool that she and her Dad came all the way from Hawaii to check out the Great Lakes scene. This weekend in Madison I'm going to shoot some interviews with a bunch of the top LOCAL racers as well, so look forward to meeting them next week. In the meantime, rest, hydrate and visualize that win (or at least a personal best) as you prepare for the big race this weekend.
PS I wanted to try posting a vid directly to blogger instead of embedding from Vimeo just to see how the quality was. You can still see this video and all my others on the Windy City Waterman channel on Vimeo by clicking THIS.
