The weird thing about this video coming across my radar today (in a newsletter about ultrarunning, no less) is that when I was contemplating my survivor anniversary challenge for this year, I lingered for a while on the idea of training for a big lake swim of some kind. And the idea hasn’t really gone away; in fact, I discussed it with my spouse just last week. So maybe this is some kind of sign?
Wow – extraordinary. When I retired and “Wild Hope” was finished – finally – I thought that my next project might be swimming in all of CO’s wildernesses. It was October – not a great start date – but I got in one very brief swim in Blue Lake in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. If you find a great lake swim, maybe I could join you. ???
Oh, absolutely! That would be wonderful!
Heh…I replied while logged in under a different account. But the answer remains, “yes, absolutely!” That would be fun!
