2008 OCEAN SWIMMING SEASON - THANK YOU!

THANK YOU for making our 2008 ocean swimming season such a wonderful experience, and a special thanks goes out to our dedicated safety crew, kayaking out there every Sunday...and loving every minute of it!

This year marked our 10th season of doing Sunday swims, and without a doubt it was one of the best seasons we've ever had. One of my highlights was seeing so many swimmers getting their first "taste" of ocean swimming (some of us still do a little more tasting than we'd like =) But what a rush to see someone out there for the first time, tossing aside any fears and intimidation, and (eventually) having fun. It's not easy at first and we all know the feeling, but once you get started you'll never want to stop. It was also a pleasure to be a part of many training for various events, from those participating in their first triathlon or open water event, to the elite folks who we see finishing way in front. All of you are an inspiration and should be proud of your accomplishments.

Lastly, I want to express my appreciation to all of you for making my swimming experience so memorable. I remember we first started with 3 friends, just out enjoying a great swim in the ocean at a beautiful location on a warm Sunday morning (but not too early). Well, I'm happy to say that after 10 years, some things never change...now I'm out there with 70 friends having a great swim!

Thanks again, and we'll see you next year (if not sooner).
