DISCLAIMER: Open-water swimming is inherently dangerous. Open-water swimmers risk drowning, hypothermia, hyperthermia, heart attacks, panic attacks, cramping, jelly fish stings, fish bites, boat or jet-ski collisions, collisions with floating or submerged objects (including other swimmers), and other calamities that can be injurious, disabling or fatal! The "West Neck Pod" is an informal association of open-water swimmers who swim "outside the lines" with no lifeguard protection, it has no formal membership, organizational structure or legal identity, and its participants, including the author of this blog, make no representations and assume no liability with respect to its group open-water swims. All swimmers who participate in West Neck Pod group open-water swims do so at their own risk. Be careful out there!

Monday Must Be "Ladies' Day" at West Neck Beach!

With the exception of Magda (fresh from her Lake Placid Ironman triumph!), who was accompanied by her husband Greg, this early Monday morning's outgoing tide was escort to none but a "gaggle of girls" who plied a course 'twixt the rising sun to the east and the setting moon to the west...half buoy-bound and half enroute to the sailboat...Carole Wickham was nearly recovered from hosting her mother's 90th birthday party for 65 family members & friends at our house on Saturday, and Gae Polisner was just returning from a week-long bout with a cold (no, not Longo-itis!), while Evelyn, Kara, Kaitlyn and I rounded out the six-some....

The water was clear, calm, and beautiful (as were all of the swimmers!), and for we "people-of-gender," this week was off to a great start! See all the rest of you tomorrow! (6:15 unless you're going exploring with Ken...!)
