This summer Express' Allyson traveled to San Francisco to compete in the Alcatraz Sharkfest Open Water Swim. 

Allyson placed 2nd overall in the Women's division, and 1st in her age group! 

After the race Allyson commented, "It was definitely different from all of the other Open Water swims I have done, but it was fun. And the water, pretty salty... I would definitely do it again." imagealcatraz
