Ho Hum. Just another perfect day in a string of perfect days. Another gorgeous bright red sunrise over the lake. The bad memories of a terrible August, three weeks straight of unusually cold water, washed away in the warm surf. And the forecast for the big weekend (Big Shoulders, Ironman Wisconsin) looks promising.
We had to hold ourselves back today, for once common sense ruled. We have big events this weekend, and we need to rest a bit. So we went a bit past "garage" and turned back. We'll be back this afternoon though, at 4:30, to put another notch in our quest for 100 swims this season.
