Wed AM Crew: James, Joe, Diablo, Cap'n, Sarah, Ben, Patriarch
Excellent swimming continues despite the evil west wind that has been blowing the last two days. James in particular is taking advantage of the great conditions by logging some serious swim time. Yesterday morning he swam to Big Bay and back (approximately 2.4 miles round trip), last night he did a 30 minute swim, and this morning he did a Big Bay round trip with Joe.
When he got out of the water he said he should be swimming less and running more to prepare for his upcoming marathon. I have a better idea: the Lakefront Marathon should add a swim division for James. With favorable currents I'll bet he could beat some runners.
