Across The Lake Swim ~ Kelowna & Summer Times

Hey Ya'll,

I hope summer is treating you well. For a long weekend with a not so hopefully forecast, it turned out pretty good here in the City of Champions.

I was in Kelowna a week and a bit ago to visit my dad and participate in the Across The Lake Swim ( ~ 2km Open Water Event.  What a great event!
Here are a few pictures from my swim in Lake Okanagan.

Pre-Race (getting motivated to put on my wetsuit)
In City Park, Kelowna

All 500+ swimmers pile onto a handful of houseboats to get to the start line.
In West Kelowna.

Back at City Park in 32:06 ~ can't wait to do it next year!

Race Towel - Check out the year ~ they have been doing this event for a lot of years!

I have been busy at the Summerside Farmer's Markets on Monday nights (selling fitness clothing), playing Ultimate Frisbee on Tuesday nights (when it isn't raining), teaching an Outdoor Boot Camp at Lake Summerside on Thursday nights (moving indoors when it is miserable outside whether it is mosquitoes, rain, hail, etc).  Weekends are weekends ~ time to hang out at the lake, with friends and family and enjoy the weather because it isn't winter yet.

Happy Training ~ don't forget about training, even if they are shorter workouts - try bringing your workout outdoors (add a hill to bike ride or add some lunges during your run)
