All around the country this morning, and here in the midwest in the middle of another snowstorm, swimmers swam their fastest for one hour.
Then their time sheets (recorded by the 50’s) will all be mailed in (that’s the going postal part) to the hosting club in Oregon. The hosting club changes every year.
Doug swam two, one hour races. In the first race he swam 4,600 and the second 4,800. 4,600 + 4,800 = 9,400 yards in all.
And who got up at 5:15 to be the timer? You bet.
