|Rainbow Bay at Deer Creek Reservoir.|
This morning I was up in Charleston for the Timpanogos Foot and Ankle 5K and 10K. The timing company my dad, brother and I own (Elevated Racing | Event Timing) was timing there timing the event. I could see Deer Creek from the finish line and knew I had to squeeze in a swim between the race and my brother Jake's birthday lunch at Tarahumara. Happy Birthday Jake!
There were already quite a few boats on the water when I got there. The water level is MUCH lower than it was last year. I took the temperature near the shore in the shallow water and it came out 73 degrees.
I loaded up my Safer Swimmer and took off. I didn't have a whole lot of time, so I was just going to stay in for an hour or so. I didn't have a watch so I relied on "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" to give me an idea how far and how long I had been swimming. From 99 down to 0 takes me about half an hour to go through when swimming, which also ends up being about a mile. I used the line of buoys for part of the time, but also went out of the bay on both sides to get in the distance I wanted.
