There is a great article in the Deseret News today about open water swimming and the Deer Creek Open Water Marathon Swim. Writer Jared Eborn quotes my friend and fellow open water adventurer, Gordon Gridley, extensively about why he loves swimming in the open water.

Open water swimming definitely does not get the same amount of press coverage that many other sports get so it's nice to see the Deseret News take notice of our sport.
