Women Swimmin'

What a beautiful day for the swim! When I woke up at 6:00 a.m. to get ready, it was quite chilly outside, but by the time I got to the Yacht Club, the weather had shifted.


A band was playing for the crowd, including many supportive spectators and women waiting for their pod's wave.

I'd been swimming 2,000 meters thrice weekly all summer, but the distance looks much different when it's one long, unbroken stretch of water! I was a little nervous on the boat waiting for our pod to get in the water, but once we had jumped in, it was a great feeling! Here I am after I just climbed on the dock after the swim.

My friend, Linda, from work, and I were in the same pod.

We could see this sign when we walked off the dock.

women swimmin - yay!

George was waiting for me.


 The crowd was big!

Many women received flowers after completing the swim.


Not everyone can park at the Yacht Club, so there are shuttles running between there and Cass Park. Here are me and Ryan, my brother-in-law, waiting for the next bus.

I'm already excited about next year. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. This year, the swim raised over $350,000 for HospiCare of Ithaca. I am so proud to have been part of the event.
