Dave B. - i pulled up Rob's website...

in regard to the zebra print... better you than me... would love to see it on the female contingent at any open water event... I hope the speedo is double-lined at least.

Uh-oh. It sounds like I will be out-swimsuited at this event!

I do have a zebra-stripe swim cap I can loan you to complete the look.

Dave - I was thinking more from a privacy standpoint... a wet white suit? - though 'only' zebra-striped.

you have had an unbelievable career in 2010 - keep in touch and I'll see you in 2011

Worry not everybody, the Rob Aquatics banana hammock is not see through! :D unfortunately neither is the lady version... haha

I'm really stoked about this Coney Island swim... spent my afternoon soaking in some 55ish degree water to get ready for it

Looks like a fun event, too bad I am sitting next to the Pacific. We don't have any ocean swims out here after late September. That Earthquake season starts and shuts down the ocean swimming. Any way you all have a cool time swimming, I will be surfing Sat morning with a wet suit on. :banana:

Great great great event! Flying cross country to play in cold water with the crew from CIBBOWS was totally worth it :D

I've got some pictures from the event over here http://robaquatics.com/2010/11/2010-cibbows-veterans-day-5k-wrap-up.html and here http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=239635&l=4e4d457989&id=189211602314 if anybody wants to check out the frosty goodness... or at least Dave in a zebra striped speedo

Great blog entry. Sounds like fun, but a red eye flight the night before? Yikes. I need to make sure I get a lot of sleep before a cold swim. I don't know how you did it.

That looks like so much fun! I think CIBBOWS needs a "Chicago House" annex.
:)

Water temp here is definitely below 55. This is probably the wrap-up week for Lake Michigan swims - until January 1!

A lovely writeup from Rob! Thanks!

As a self appointed remote CIBBOW, I jumped in the lake on the northside on Sunday. 43 degrees. Short swim. hehehe

I was worried about that too. I did ok on Saturday, but I acclimated way faster when I swam on Sunday after a good night's sleep with a bonus daylight savings hour thrown in for good measure.

If you are thinking about swimming Tampa Bay, you had better start acclimatizing by swimming in warmer water.
