It's that time of year again when all the winter months spent swimming in the pool pays off and I can finally swim in open water! 🏊🏊🏊
I had my first long swim in the lake today and I’m really excited for this year to once again swim in two open water distance fundraisers. .
On July 14th I'll be completing the Bring on the Bay 3 Km swim in support of Easter Seals Kids. I’m hoping to beat my time last year of 58:12. Easter Seals relies solely on donations from the public to provide programs and services for children and youth with physical disabilities.

On August 11th, I will be participating for the 3rd time (last year’s event was cancelled due to thunderstorms) in the Riverkeeper 4 Km swim which raises money for the Ottawa Riverkeeper @ottriverkeeper a local, grassroots charity that works to protect, promote, and improve the health of the Ottawa River and its tributaries. I’m hoping to beat my best time of 1:22:37. To sponsor me for this swim, please follow this link: https://raceroster.com/events/2018/18027/ottawa-riverkeeper-4k-swim/pledge?id=51&type=participant
