Who knew… the world didn’t stop if I wasn’t there! haha. Thanks to Dylan, Darren and the gang for picking up the slack while I was swimming the 10k at the North Shore Challenge with a bunch of other friends and LOSTies!
Dylan was even kind enough to do a little write up for me!… enjoy:
A number of Losties were away this past weekend at the North Shore Challenge down in Lake Erie, but even despite that there was another impressive turnout at LOST on Saturday with 84 people showing up!
The water was 57F though a number of people said that they thought it was colder (I didn’t even have my dad’s magic rounding up thermometer I swear!) but that didn’t seem to stop anyone from having a good swim. It’s crazy to think how this year 57F is no big deal for most people to get a solid swim when only a couple years ago a lot of people wouldn’t even get in.
It was a pretty typical morning for LOST with calm waters and everyone having a good time despite the cold, kind of crazy how having 80+ people swim in water in the mid-fifties can be classified as a “typical” morning but that seems to be the case this summer.
On a special wildlife update though, 2 weeks ago we spotted a mink down at the beach and then this weekend while we were setting up the course there was a beaver swimming around in the lake! So while you don’t have to worry about sharks in Lake O apparently you might be swimming with beavers! How Canadian is that…
Overall it was a nice day for a chilly swim and a good morning to warm up for coffee at Brett’s after!
