TBT to the race that etched in my mind. The idea of a "trail"on the #otillo race course is at best a loosely defined term. To be fair there are road sections as well but athletes spend a lot of time trying not to slip on wet rocks and hopping over boulders. Here is a series of images that demonstrate it. Pt3

Tethering was a good idea in this section. It was at this spot and not pig swim or other sections where I was really in awe of the spectacle that this race is. Swimmers were pushed way off the island entry point by super strong currents and gale force winds. My lens and viewfinder were beginning to fog pretty bad from the constant sideways rain so I just pointed and shot hoping for something to stick. Fun times. Respect to the swimmers for racing this event. It is no joke. You have to be ready for this.

#otillo is all about teamwork. Check out the team in the far left top corner battling the currents to reach the same spot.

Simple moments. I lost this portrait of Nela when one of my hard drives died earlier this year and I didn't back it all up (not making this mistake again)  but I found a low res version enough for a small print. Backup and print the photos you love. Prints will outlast any cloud, USBs, dongles or hard drives.  This will be the first generation since invent of photography that was the most photographed but will have nothing to be remembered by as all the memories will die on obsolete iPhones. .

It is weird how fresh this experience still feels.  TBT to this moment where I looked for Rich all over the water and there he emerged riding the Baltic currents like a rodeo cowboy totally in control. One of my personal favorite pictures from the trip.  It also headlined the New York Times article about the race and Rich which you can find a link to in my profile.  This whole trip was a major step out of my comfort zone, not knowing how it will work out logistically, weather I will be able to even find Rich and Chris on the race course, will I get sick and spend 11 hours throwing up over boat, will my equipment survive all the rain. None of the fears came true and instead I came out of this experience exhilarated, happy, tired and with some pictures I am happy about.  So step out of your comfort zone once in a while and you may find yourself live more. .

Here it is. The secret fist bump that was necessary to break the record in such crazy conditions. 😁Congrats to the team Swedish Armed Forces Jesper Svensson and Daniel Hansson. .

I have gone through all my images from the #otillo race and even though the weather created the most challenging conditions in history of the race, Chris was truly enjoying every minute of it. @aimpcoach

It felt like I was watching this scene unfold in slow motion, anticipating this moment. I wanted to get it just right. After a solid day following the race this photo summed up what @otillorace is, especially in the conditions that the world championship played out. For those new to this sport, it is a team sport. You can race in a same gender team or mixed. It's not just to be different. There is an aspect of safety built in. Your teammate is your best chance if you might find yourself needing some help.  This was at the end of the "fun" pig swim section.  I had to do a little investigation as I wasn't sure who the team was but I think this was team 328. Hopefully @otillorace can help and confirm. .

I like this image a lot. Team "Finding Ultra" @richroll and Chris Hauth @aimpcoach leading out of the water followed closely by another team during last Monday's @otillorace.  I just realized why I like it.  It reminds me of the human life origins and evolution out of water.  I am also jet lagged like hell and may be making no sense at all.

Spending time with Chris and Rich during their training camp helped a lot in identifying them in the water during @otillorace Like Orcas with their distinct fins, each swimmer has their own distinct style of arm recovery.  Looking at them swim in those crazy swells made me nervous for their safety but then hearing them talk how much they enjoyed it and how they just relinquished control and went with the flow made my mind spin. Next level skills. Poetry in motion.

It was an unbelievable experience following @richroll and Chris Hauth @aimpcoach on the journey to @otillorace. I am thankful and grateful to them for letting me document it. I am also grateful to Josefine As and Michael Lemmel of @otillorace for her care of me and not letting me get lost somewhere in the Baltic and to Michael for leading such an amazing event. His vision and love for this sport is incredible and his hospitality and hugs are unmatched!
If you want to learn more about OtillO race and the sport of SwimRun check out this insightful article written for New York Times by @adamskolnick and illustrated with a few of my images (link in bio). More to come! .

Too bad @caroburckle will not be able to compete in @otillorace. Witnessing her swim in Donner Lake was impressive. Like a northern ⭐️ showing the way across the lake, in casual backstroke. πŸŠπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™Œ
