My ‘Across The Lake Swim’ Finish in Kelowna, BC

Last Saturday I swam in the event at Kelowna, BC.  It was the 65th year of the event.  It was my first open water swim.  It was 2.1 kilometers.  At least that’s what is should be in a straight line.  I’m  more than a little certain that I did not go in a straight line.  Got cut off a couple of times by people crossing in front of me and such.  And now that it is over I can say it was great fun.  I was in the first wave and we were waiting in the water for some of the speeches before the start – it was getting a little cold.  I was not as fast as I’d hoped but with all the factors of going crooked having to lift my head many times and do a bit of breaststroke to get my bearings I’m completely happy with my time of 39 minutes.   I placed 170 out of 650 people.
