After a steady diet of faster pace sprints today, several swimmers headed to West Asheville for a calorie intake session:) Recently, Fridays have been great for attendance, with 19 in the water for workout this morning! We’d love to have a few more of those capable bodies join us on Sunday, 7a-9a…See you then!
Congratulations to Frank and Jimbo for swimming the length of Lake Fontana (at least 24 miles) this past weekend, in about 12 hours! This was the 2.0 version of “That Dam Swim” raising money for the Hope Chest for Women. If you’d care to donate to this cause, click here! Well done, gentlemen!
Please note that we will begin swimming indoors on Sunday this weekend. For now, our time will be 7am-9am on Sundays. Always check calendar for accurate time:)
For the next 2 weeks, if you’d like to get some lake swimming in, consider heading to Biltmore Lake at 9am on Sunday, for about an hour. Enjoy!
