This morning I drove up to Pineview and was in the water at 5:45am. I picked up the pace a little this morning and focused on a faster spm. Did a first big Dam loop (2.5 miles) in 1:17. Met with Jessica Miller, a reporter for the SL Tribune. Goody was already there talking with her and we both answered her questions. Afterwards Goody and I did some posing and some light swimming for her to take some pics.
On my way out of the parking lot, some guy waved me down who was coming from the beach up to the parking lot. He asked, "Did you see anyone pick up a towel and some shoes on the shoreline?" The towel's no big deal, but the shoes had some sentimental value. Really? This was a man I was looking at, but I was starting to wonder. The walk from the beach to the parking lot is about 80 yards. I don't even bother with shoes or a towel. I just leave them in the car. But still, it's lame that someone would take stuff off the beach. Most likely it was taken out of ignorance rather than greed.
This morning the weather was nice, and the water temp I recorded was 67°F. Definitely not "cool". I'm looking forward to a long swim at Bear Lake this Saturday.
