New Year's Eve 2013: Swim EVERY Event Swim
Paul, Chris and Bill, The "Big Three" of the Monday thru Friday Early Morning Swims, (5:30 to 6:45 AM) decided to mark this New Year's Eve, (December 31, 2013) by swimming virtually every event in a regular swim meet in, more or less, meet order. The swim totaled 5,300 yards and was finished in a little under an hour and forty five minutes. The only concession made was that "swim toys" were allowed -- including fins, pull-buoys and paddles. Quibble if you will with that decision, it was a fun event if not, strictly speaking, a legit Swim Meet. After the 5,300 yards, Bill went off to work, Chris went to take a nap and Paul, (who never seems to get tired), went out to Caumsett State Park in Lloyd Neck for his normal 10 mile run! And, oh yes, it was 21 degrees outside!
