    Sadly, the Tampa Bay Marathon Swim was canceled this morning due to high winds, according to @RonCollins' Twitter feed. It looks like they started with a "Plan B" route, a 4.25-mile loop course, all west of Pt Pinellas. But then it was canceled outright shortly thereafter.

    Sympathies to Ron and the swimmers... that's gotta be frustrating.
