It was kind of nice to just do a dip this time. I didn't have any shaky recovery, numb fingers or painful toes, it was actually pretty fun! I felt quite a bit like a slacker on the way back, but I'll give a much better effort next Thursday. I was only immersed for about 10 seconds. It was amazing thinking that Lewis Pugh and Lynn Cox swam in water this cold for more than 20 minutes! On the way back to the car I looked at the water east of the parking lot and there was no ice over there. If it is slushy inside the marina again, I'm gonna get in on the east side of the marina and do a swim over there instead.
On the way back to SLC, we stepped inside the Saltair building which was being used as a packet pickup for a running race. I've never been in there and was curious what it was like. I was a little underwhelmed with how big it was on the inside and definitely not a pretty place in there. Made me wish to see the original Saltair I to compare.
