A FELLOW SWIMMER!!! Wow, @Mrs.Groovy and @AmyB were right!! I'm ecstatic!!
@OpenWaterSwim - sounds like you're the real deal ("competitive open water swimmers"!). I'm more of a one-flippered seal, but I love ~45 minute swims in open water. Since you're likely to be blogging about it at some point, you may be interested in the articles I wrote about swimming in:
Lake Ocoee, GA
I'm just finishing up a post tonight that'll go live on July 11, all about swimming. Stop on by, I'll do the same for you. Look forward to seeing what you come up on your new blog!
Common interest, instant friend.
We're all here to help. If you need anything, don't be afraid to ask! Welcome aboard, Jaes!
