Water temp is 72 degrees and warming. Spring swimming season has definitely started. Lucky has returned to the lake giving up his climate controlled Swimex workouts for the much more spiritual open water. It’s like seeing the bubble boy coming out of his bubble. Speaking of coming out, even Dave Heffernan has ditched his black sausage suit (not without a bunch of whining though).
Congratulations to Garfield Thomas (our current record holder for 70-74) who traveled all the way from the UK to set the 75-79 record previously held by 1000K club member George Mann. Garfield did a blistering 20:02 breaking the old record by a minute and becoming the second person to hold a lake swim record in two different age groups at the same time (The other being Eric Christensen who holds the record for 35-39 and 40-45).
Easter swim is fast approaching make sure you mark our EAT-PRAY-SWIM (not necessarily in that order) event on your calendars and bring friends. Festivities start on Easter at Sunrise. Bring your own folding chairs/ blankets to sit on.
I wondered about the “Eat, Pray, Swim” thing, as I was dreading the indigestion.
