Great Lake Swimmer

Yesterday, I had my first open water swim! it was so nice to just conquer the unknown. My wetsuit worked great! It was the first time I had put it on--when we bought it, I got frustrated in the dressing room cause I was sweaty and didn't have any Suit Juice, but yesterday, it slipped right on! I didn't swim as far as I could have, because there were so many new variables--lake water, light waves, no pool walls to stop and catch your breath on, and the hardest for me--zero visability. Man, that lake is murky! But I am proud of myself for what I did, and as long as I swim in the lake at least once a weekend, I will be fine.
