Summer is soon here and yes for the tri athletes the fun part of swimming is soon starting.. Free of counting tiles, no wall to be bother resting at and you will not have that great smell of eau de chlorine in your hair..
I would like as many swimmers as possible to attend the open water swim at Brights Grove July 17 and the Welland Canal August 8 during the summer.. It is a great way to train and swim in open water.. Just like training in the pool..yes without a wet suit and the black line on the bottom of the pool. Think about it, you can continue swimming and it is the closest, you can get to an open water swimming practice, without having to bike and run after.. You will need to register with MSO  $35 ASAP. We already have a few of our swimmers attending.
Sue Weir is hosting the Brights Grove event. I spoke with her this past weekend and she said, it is lots of fun... no pressure...Great training....Remember this is not just for tri-athletes..
