Regular swim times this week with the exception of Labor Day when we will be swimming at 7:45am. We are now entering perfect open water swim season which starts around September and goes through mid October. The water temp drops down into comfortable levels, so if you haven’t been out in a while dust off your Speedos and get back into the groove of things.

Ray Wiss a Canadian Lucky’s Lake Swimmer just completed his first ironman the Mont Tremblant in Quebec. He has trouble running because he was shot in the knee in Afghanistan. He had to walk the run part ,and he did it in his military fatigues to honor his buddies who didn’t return from Afghanistan. Notice the sliver of green under the official race cap. It is a green Lucky’s Lake Swim cap. How cool. Many congrats Ray and thanks for sharing your story.
