Great swim last week with seven swimmers braving the weedy waters of Lake Waubesa. Actually, once we were out about 100 yards, the weeds miraculously disappeared. The day was sunny and warm and the crowd rallied behind the MBC advocacy efforts. Heather McManamy was remembered as the warm, funny caring person she was and we all miss her beaming smile. Last Tuesday the cheering section from the sidelines included Heather's family and I felt the vibes that would encourage us to sprint through the water. The ironmen/women in the group were like machines swimming like fish while some of us (names will not be disclosed) "turtled" along as fast as we could simply enjoying the swim in their wake. Beautiful day, beautiful memories for one amazing woman.
The next swim is June 28th and it looks like it is going to be quite the event. Mark it on your calendars and join in on the fun. There will be yoga on the shoreline and experts to answer any cancer questions. Swimmers from Michigan and California will also be making the trek here to plunge through the waters advocating along the way. One Woman Many Lakes Day is about to happen! My cohorts, Lesley in California--hiking up a mountain and Leslie--running in Texas, will be showing the country that we need more for stage iv.
