10 Reasons Why Open Water Swimming Rocks - Swimnetwork.com

I just came across this funny, but true, article about what is so exciting about open water swimming on Swimnetwork.com.  The author, Casey Barrett, gives 10 reasons why open water swimming is cooler than pool swimming:

1) You have to know your opponent
2) To be good at open water, you don't have to be the best in the pool
3) Open water swimmers are tougher
4) Pursuit races
5) Chicks dig scars, gross stories and examples of toughness
6) The cure for pool burnout
7) Different racing strategies
8) Better for spectators
9) You learn to swim straight
10) You actually go somewhere

The full article can be found here, and is definitely worth the read.
