I was thinking the name "The Great Salt Lake" is pretty lame. I mean, its a description of it, but it really isn't a good name. It has personality. It can be asleep with the water flat as glass, and it can be grumpy. It's very moody. So it should be a woman.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger). This morning Loch Laura was in a pissy mood. It took me 1:20 to swim one lap of the Gridley Straight. Granted I was feeling rather sluggish, but the waves were definitely an impact. On the way back I realized I was only going to do one lap, so I took a much wider path back. Good thing I tied my drink down to my board, cause it was dragging a couple times, and I would have been guilty again of littering, but I'm learning.
The temp this morning was also a little warmer than I like (71f), so I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and start doing trips up to Pineview at least once or twice a week in the mornings. It'll mean I'll have to stay later to work to make up for coming in late, but it's only for less than two months! Then I could care less about colder temperatures.
Total Distance: 2.3 miles in 1:20
