Check out said Angry Lake. Snow was falling. Very gray and very bleak. Why did I do a solo plunge??? The Cleveland Triathlon Clubs dunk in the Lake was at the same time as my Brides Pilates Class. Since I have yet to perfect the art of being in two places at the same time, and frankly I wanted to support her as she begins a new venture, I had to drag the Bride to the Lake to chronicle the dubious dunking after the Pilates class.
Like the swim trunks. I could have worn a wild bright tropical suit, this blue one or a speedo. J.T. in a speedo is not a pretty sight. Stripped off the sweatsuit and shoes and wasted no time at all. Waves were crashing. Wind was fierce. Heard Gordon Lightfoots song about the Edmund Fitzgerald as the wind and the cold taunted me.
Whewww!!! Just being able to throw on the bathrobe, throw on shoes ,snap the final photo and hightail it back home was all I could take... Hey, and to my CTC friends, many of whom I have never had the chance to meet, hope your Plunge was awesome!!!!!! I was with you in spirit and in goosebumps.
