Yes, I know someone will tell me that summer really begins this year on 20 June at 4:09 PM (PDT) and ends on the Autumnal Equinox 22 September 7:49 AM (PDT); but well all know that summer began at 6 pm 25 May (the start of the Memorial Day weekend) and ends Tuesday 4 September 6am (the day after the Labor Day weekend).
Enjoy the summer, the longest season of the year. Be sure to put sun block on before you go out in the sun. That tan may look great when you are in your 20's, but in your 50's the cumulative damage may cause you some problems.
Try something new this summer. If you have not been to an open water swim, we have some great ones scheduled. The Lake Del Valle .75 Mile is nice easy swim, in a beautiful area.
Talk one of your friends into coming to a swimming practice. Write a note to your coach to tell him/her how coaching has made a difference in your swimming.
This week, there are deadlines for the USMS Summer Nationals (long course), the on-line pre reg deadline for the Davis Lake Berryessa open water swim.
Today is the day we commemorate all troops who fought and died in war for the United States, May they rest in peace.
Fun, fitness and competition
