Warmest Water of the Season
Next Swim: 6:30 AM Tuesday Klode. The water temp was 74 today, and it was crystal clear. Swimming couldn't be better. Please join us.
I'm sorry there haven't been any blog updates the last few days, but there was just so much happening and so little time.
The big thing, of course, was Big Shoulders (oh yeah, there was some little thing in Madison too).
Big Shoulders, is the 5K open water national championship, held at Ohio Street Beach in downtown Chicago. 800 swimmers participated in either the 5K or 2.5 K swim. Conditions were perfect, the water was clear, calm, and warm (73). My daughter Melanie did very well, taking 5th in her age group with a time of 1:15:01.
A complete report of the race is on their website: http://www.bigshoulders.org/
