The 6th Annual LOST – Connor’s Runners Beer Mile!

Well it was another perfect night for a Beer Mile!  There was 12 brave Beer Miler's performing for the entertainment of 20-30 spectators... and a good time was had by all! Here are the results!!!  (including past years too!) You had Al Wiggins taking back his title from Brett Titus, who held it briefly last year.  Al now owns the best all-time BM record of 6:48!  It only took a 7:10 to win this year for Al, collecting his 4th title in 6 years! Lambrina held her title for the second year in a row, with a women's all time best of...

The First Rule of Fight Club is: “there is no Beer Mile”!

Well it was the right day to shut'er down!  The lake rolled over... and it was 7C/45F!  It was great to have such a big turn out this late in the season.  41 LOSTies still got in and did a 1 buoy swim!  We were almost down to Ice Mile temperatures!

This year the weather has still been really nice.  The Lake hasn't really cooled off yet.  As I said all summer, this is a big lake and takes a long time to warm up, but also takes a long time...

Incredibly… the warmest swim of the year will be tomorrow!!!

So we aren't done yet! The weather tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful with a high of 31C (feels like)!  But as we all know, that has nothing to do with water temperature.  But incredibly the water temp is supposed to be over 70F/20C tomorrow! Last week we had a malware attack that shut down our mailchimp distribution, so I wasn't able to send out an email saying that LOST Swimming was still on.  So I was quite surprised when I got there and we still had a great turnout... I figured people would be winding it down.  The season usually...
