Last night Wonder Woman, Cap'n and me were treated with water that was much warmer than yesterday morning.  It's amazing how much it can warm up in twelve hours.  But unfortunately the reverse is also true, twelve hours later it was much colder again.  But despite the 60 degree water this morning most swam without wetsuits.  I'm not sure if it means we're getting acclimated, or maybe it means we're just getting tougher.  Or maybe we're just getting dumber and dumberer.

Congratulations to Kahuna for being prominently featured on this morning's editorial page!  Nice job!  (But I've never heard of a pirate that was against the death penalty, unless it was one at the end of the plank!)

The Friday 6AM swim should be interesting as I am doing the Bastille Run at 9PM Thursday evening, followed by a grog or two.

Those who run Storm tonight, I'll be hanging out after the race for awhile on the cathedral steps.
