  1. Maybe now they will ease up a bit on the rules. I find its ridiculous that you cannot simply walk through the water even some of the time! Come on now! The people that are going to walk clearly aren’t concerned about winning, nor would they win anyhow, so what’s the big deal!? Why can’t they register and participate to the best of their ability, and if that means some walking in the water, so be it! That’s why I have never gone back to do the swim myself… too strict.
