United we stand... and swim

Next Swims: Friday 6PM, 2:00PM Saturday, noon Sunday

Last Swim: 6am Friday, TGIF
Water: 51F (toe-mometer), flat as glass
Clarity: Excellent
Crew: Showgirl, Dave (aka Milkman)
Skin/Suit: 0/2

Despite the seeds of divisiveness Patriarch is trying to sow below, I would suggest that we are all one, all connected. Furthermore, the sun is already up for the 6am swim.

I'd like to tell you that the water has been warming up a bit more each day, but... it hasn't really.  That said, the 60F air temperature and lovely sunrise this morning made it easier to get in.

Today was Milkman's (where do these nicknames come from?) first open water swim of the season, prior to a grueling 1/4min swim this weekend at the Lake Mills tri. I offered to swim next to him, elbow, jostle, kick, push, etc in order to replicate the authentic tri experience.

Anyway, good luck and have fun this weekend, Milkman, and thanks for being there this morning so I couldn't wimp out.
