... They also gave us a bowl of baguette slices, and then a kind of crispy cheesy bread that we dipped in balsalmic. We're not sure why we got the extra cheesy bread but had no complaints. We slowly made our way through our meal, making sure to eat the olives off of our pizza before consuming it because when you order olives on pizza here in France and Italy (presumably all of Europe), they come with pits and stems!

We both commented that we would probably "do a Donna" and wait for 5 minutes on the beach to let all the other crazy swimmers go before entering the water to start the swim. Why not? You've got 16 hours to complete the race - what's 5 minutes??
The swim was 3.8km and consisted of 2 laps. A first lap of 2.4km and a second lap of 1.4km after the swimmers ...
