Since January I practiced swimming to compete in an open water race which was planned for February 25.
I went to the pool four times a week for almost two months. I improved my technique and did many times the distance of the race, 800 meters.
The day of the competition I´d to go to the beach at 10 o’clock for the accreditation. There, I got a bag that contained a chocolate and a swimming cap colored red that I had to wear.
My race was the third competition. I was very nervous and anxious because I was waiting for my best friend to come and support me. She came in the right moment minutes before it started. I´d already got into the water, it was warm, with no waves. The day was a sunny and hot one.
