Yay! As I recall, this was a popular swim last year. Congratulations to organizers for committing themselves to a second year of a midstate swim.

This swim is also Illinois' 2011 contribution to GLOWS - Great Lakes Open Water Swim series. Win points and fame by participating in GLOWS.

Good luck with the operation and rehab, and a quick return to the water!

The OW season is upon us with alarming speed. Lake Michigan is already 53 degrees, and it's definitely not too soon to start planning for the Central Illinois Open Water Swim on August 6!

It took me a full 1.5 days to realize that some people don't actually swim until water warms up to, oh, 60 degrees!
