Overcoming Open Water Fears

Some folks really fear swimming in open water.

While it doesn't seem as though it would be that hard, this is the biggest challenge people will cite to me in being unwilling to attempt a triathlon.

Before you say "no", check out this post from Chris Janzen at triathletemind.com.  For the most part, it's simply "head games" where we need to use reverse psychology in order to overcome fear.

The swim across the pond is never as far as it looks, you just need to be able to overcome this thought in your head.
