The 2008 Great Chesapeake Bay Swim

yes I signed up for this. I was looking for a new challenge and I remember my friend Melisa ( with one S ) saying that this swim looked like fun. Well that's not what she said, but translated, that's what it means.
Here is the website
4.4 miles of swimming in the Chesapeake bay, now doesn't that sound like fun?
I entered the lottery because it was free and was on of the lucky ones, they only accept 600, to get picked, so I put in my $250 and now I am committed. At the very least it's another reason to use the pool :-). I have read some of the race reports from last year and if I can quote one of my favorite sayings, it doesn't look that bad.

Good luck on your effort this weekend! Make sure you have a talk with your kids, if they're young, and assure them that what you're about to undertake is *very* safe. You're in a wetsuit, which is like a life jacket, and there'll be boats and people all around you. My kids were very relieved when I had this talk with them (2 years ago now.) See you on Sunday!
