Swim Report – October 12, 2013 – Sunrise!

Once again, we beat the storms!

Ma Nature gave us a crisp and choppy lake at 7:00am, so things were a bit slow going at first since it was almost impossible to get a decent swim rhythm. But she made up for her fickleness with yet another amazing sunrise which provided the perfect backdrop to our journey to Oak Street Beach.

All in all, there were around 15 of us who made it out to L1 – including new Lake Monsters John, Mandie, and Maryvonne. Below are some pics from the swim. More are coming, so be sure the check back again!

    Glad to become one of your Lake Monsters…it was really a nice and quiet way to visit Chicago unusual sides…maybe some day some of my friends from the AS MURET TRIATHLON come to taste your fresh waters and peacefull sunrises…
