We chatted a bit then started. Joelle was supposed to be with us but we started without her. Sure enough, about 100 strokes into the swim, I see a woman running down toward the "beach" with a towel and nothing else. I pulled up and it was Joelle. She swam up to me and said Hi long enough to keep right on going!
I did the "Goody Loop" which is from the beach to the buoys then back. I know the water is low and wouldn't make the usual 2 miles so I took really wide turns and serpentine some while swimming to add distance.
Got back and Gordon was almost done doing his 2.5 mile route. Joelle was close behind him. We all started again and I did another lap.

Got back and said bye to Gords and Joelle.
4 miles today OW. Longest swim of the year. REALLY happy I came today and swam this far. I'm going to have to test my distance again and see if the same pattern comes again. If it does, then I know I have to do more than 2 miles before I start feeling good. THEN I will start doing some serious distance again. Time will tell.
