Leonard Jansen, who is one of the swimmers who is participating in next week's solo swim of 27 miles, gave me these tidbits in an email where I requested tips for my upcoming trial swim of the course next week. Thought I should pass them on as I know of a few local swimmers who are not seasoned veterans who, like myself, benefit very much from the wisdom of others... thanks Leonard!
All the nitty gritty details (and there are a lot of them) have just been announced on the Facebook page and the main END-WET page - so make sure to give that a thorough read if you're racing or volunteering in the event next weekend. But what about the fun details? well, there are those too, thanks to our fabulous sponsors!!!! Here is a well deserved shot out....
I heard a report yesterday that someone saw a black bear swimming down the Red River through the center of town. Word has it that he was training for the race too. I'm a little skeptical on this last point though as i haven't recieved his registration or even an email inquiry as to whether there are still spots available.
