I took a break from writing a few minutes ago and looked back at some of my recent blog entries.

100 Swims

This year I have surpassed previous records for the number of lake swims I have enjoyed in my beautiful Waltons Lake. My first swim this season was on May 28th. By July 2nd I had only reached #10 and it was during that swim that I decided I would swim every day rain...
