Last Friday I successfully swam across Lake Ontario into Oakville. Oakville is home to LOST swimming and where my love affair with the Lake bloomed. So for sentimental reasons I choose a new route…Just a warning LOSTies, Rob Kent, founder of LOST has a way of making some crazy ideas seem like good ones…lol. Truthfully though, Rob & LOST are doing great things for the growth of open water swimming in our area, and in particular in Lake Ontario. Rob has been a mentor, a supporter and encourager, but mostly a great friend. As have the LOST members. It is such a great group of people with a wealth of swimming knowledge and experience but everyone is so down to earth and modest. I love having people to train with in the lake and to chat with after!
This whole experience has been incredible and I can’t thank you all enough for your encouragement and support throughout. Many LOSTies were at the send off (on a Thursday at midnight, can’t believe it!) and at the finish, where we did our best to give you some added excitement! The turnout really was overwhelming!
Again, thanks for everything!
Proud to be a LOSTie!,
