Nothing Like a Nice Swim

Next  Swim:  Wednesday 6/10 6:00AM

Last Swim:  Tuesday 6/9 6AM
Water Temp: 48
Waves: Flat Calm
Water Clarity: Crystal Clear
Swim Crew:  Diablo, Kahuna, Gumdrop
Skin/Wetsuit: 1/2
Spectators:  Mr. Anonymous, Patriarch

The quote of the day comes from Kahuna who said as he emerged from this morning's adventure, "There's nothing like a nice swim………and that was not a nice swim".

It was an ideal day for swimming in every way but one.  The water was clear and calm, the morning was beautiful.  Paddle boarders glided across the lake.  But the water was frigid!  It didn't stop Kahuna and Gumdrop and Diablo (who swam skin!), they're better men than me!

I've heard the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.  Well then we are definitely insane, because we'll be back Wednesday morning.  It's just got to be warmer, right?

I was joking. I actually enjoyed the swim. We are blessed to have the clear lake to swim in. Glad I talked myself into going in this morning. Diablo, as always, is the courageous one.

If anyone is interested, you can come watch some very talented runners run the Wisco Mile tomorrow (Wednesday) evening, and then watch the Cap'n and I duke it out, probably seeing who can avoid last place, in the Masters Mile Race. Details at: http://wiscomile.com/. Or come run the mile yourself in one of the races. Cost is only $15, and pineapples are awarded to those who win, place and show!

Or come run the Superun 5k at Lake Park and admire the beauty of the lake from the bluff!
