Swim Party Get-Together at Finley's: April 15, 2015

Wednesday night in Huntington found a few (Pod Size Group) of area swimmers and triathletes at Finley's on Greene Street to celebrate Tax Day. No, NO! It wasn't a tax day party, it was to say "Congratulations". "Best Wishes" etc to Katy, sandwiched between Margot and Erin. Katy will be getting married next month!

To get Katy to Finley's, unaware, she was told it was for my birthday which is also just around the corner. BTW, thanks for the "Happy Birthday" song.  Sad to say, it was easy to tell we were out with swimmers and not professional singers! Though I'm pretty sure Katy enjoyed her song, "Here Comes the Bride" even if NOBODY knew what came after "all dressed in white".

Below: Somebody's gotta make the bar run to pick up a few last drinks. Though, I am happy to report that at least half of us made it to the pool for the 5:30 to 7:00AM swim workout!

A Pre-Easter Swim: Saturday April 4, 2015

A pretty good turn-out for the weekly Saturday morning swim just before Easter Sunday. Though, I must confess that I thought it would be even busier than it was since the Y will be closed for Easter, Have a great holiday and we'll see you back in the pool on Monday morning!
