This morning's swim marked the 100th time the crew has walked the plank since our first official swim on May 22nd. For those keeping track at home this was our 77th day of swimming in the lake out of a possible 93. By comparison last year we started swimming on May 23rd and today would have been day 92...in a row.
I don't have the exact stats available at the moment....but despite the discrepancy in the number of days swum between this year and last year I'm pretty sure our total swim count for this year may be only a swim or two behind last year's count. (Stay tuned for the official swim count comparison) ....by the way....yesterday's Pitsch poured count of 23 was not a record. A record of 29 were poured last year when "Padre" officially earned his nickname. ...another interesting stat this morning is that our official "plank" counter now reads 666 for the year. (Note to Padre....please put in a good word for us so our exceptional swim fortunes may continue!)
Our streak of consecutive skin swim days was extended to 22 this morning. A crimson sun rose slowly over the horizon of a nearly glass like lake surface and combined with water temps hovering around 70 to make for an exceptional swim.
