This morning I was out at the marina at 6:15am and did two laps of the Gridley Straight (strict school teacher version). I went around the red buoys both times. The water was clear as glass and the swim was spent thinking about brine shrimp, brine flies, and Greg Mockett's planned swim today.
I just got a text from him saying he completed it in 4:24. I'll post pictures and quote his story here once I get them. Another person is in the books!
Total Distance for today: 4.2 miles in 2:04
Here is Greg's Map of his actual course.
And here is his video:
