Not your typical Father’s Day Weekend. Noblesville, Indiana was host to the the US Masters 25K Swimming National Championships and Doug participated with Bill and Gordy as his guides in a double kayak.
You can read all about it on Doug’s blog http://www.alongswim.com. He’ll tell you the important parts but I’ll tell you this …
… He came in 27th out of 66 swimmers. The 26 swimmers who came in before him were in their 30’s. (Note, my bionic boyfriend is 53.) I needed to tell him that this is amazing.
… A double kayak is a hell of a lot of fun for two teenage boys.
… Noblesville, Indiana is just far enough – 4-1/2 hours to make the ride a little boring.
… Gordy got the sunburn of his life and now believes in sunscreen.
Next up … July 23rd … a puny 5K in Chicago. The Chicago Skyline makes for a great backdrop.
