# 254 Lake Monona--Check

A cause may be inconvenient, but it's magnificent. It's like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.” 

 Arnold BennettThe Title: A Comedy in Three Acts

The fifth swimmer is in the boat getting ready for her splash. 

I'm not sure if suffering is what happened yesterday but with swim #4 of the Madison lakes completed, it certainly felt magnificent.  People are talking and we are ranting so the word is getting out about MBC.  Are you listening world?  We are mad as hell!

A humongous thank you to all the supporters on shore, kayakers and swimmers alongside me.  Being surrounded by this incredible group of people has been absolutely mind boggling.  It has been said that this is a lonely disease but as I swam yesterday my thoughts kept coming back to those land lover cheerleaders, the skillful boaters and the nonstop swimmers all collectively shouting out for me and the other 155,000 of us with this disease.  Loneliness--not happening with so many watching my back.

 They. never. stop. giving.

Thanks for reading # 254 of 7777.
