So if anyone is wondering, I believe I finally have my open water schedule set. It is again going to pretty much absorb my bank account and my vacation time from work. Somehow it all seems worth it.
1st – Hagg Lake Open Water Series (800m, 2K, 4K) – Forest Grove, OR
5th – Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (28.5 miles) – New York City, NY
2nd – Boston Light Marathon Swim (8 miles) – Tentative as registration hasn’t opened yet
9th – Pennock Island Challenge (8.2 miles) – Ketchikan, AK
14-17th – Long Course Nationals – Gresham, OR
23rd – Alcatraz Challenge (1.5 miles) – San Francisco, CA
August is a little full and I’m sure that I’ll add in some swims in June and July. Although I may not as I’ll need the training time.
I’ve decided that I’m going to get a crab pot this year for when I train down at Nehalem Bay. I might as well catch some of those crabs that I see along the bottom. Keep your fingers crossed and watch this site, as I’m sure that there will be stories galore about the swimmer hauling in a crab pot. I’m sure the fishermen will have a field day with this. I’ve already received information that I must buy a crab permit. I’ll do that when I head to the coast.
