In celebration of Don Davis' b'day, todays practice was 65x 50 @ 65 seconds. a few of us decided to do 65x 75 @ 1:05 and I did a fair amount of them as 25fly 50 fr. The practice took a total of 70 minutes and we had 5 minutes for a cool down swim. After, we all went to the local watering hole for beer, food and conversation.

I've known Don for over 25 years.... dating back to the days when he used to put on a triathlon at Coney Island. I even participated in said event a couple of times. Things were simpler then... no aero bars or wetsuits. Don now organizes the SOS triathlon a local favorite event that has participants swim in all three of my beloved Shawangunk Lakes.

A great time was had by all. Happy birthday Don! and many more!

    A thoughtful birthday celebration! The Shawangunks lakes caught my eye. Do you know whether these lakes are open for swimming at any other time?
    Registration for the eight-stage 2010 triathlon has already closed, for those interested. It looks like a beautiful venue to exert oneself in. The 'Gunks are storied among the technical climbing community.
