Saturday is the Madison Open Water Swim, one or two laps of the 1.2 mile Ironman swim course in Lake Monona.  Normally we'd consider doing it, but the conditions have been so great in Lake Michigan that Saturday we can do our own version of an ironman swim:  back and forth to Big Bay which is almost exactly 2.4.  Optionally go one way (1.2) and walk, run, or bike back.  Stay tuned for details.

Don't forget to include the Fine Wench and myself in the count total. We swam at 07:30 and met most of the morning crew on the walkway to the plank just before the parking lot. Gumdrop even turned around and joined us for a morning double dip. I'll be in Madison but will be game for another 2.4 on Sunday!
