Anyone know what the temps are or am I crazy to think it's even close to swimmable?

I did a quick run around Trout lake after riding the mountain bike loop this afternoon. There were sunbathers, but no one was swimming or wading in the water. I dropped in a cheapo thermometer maybe about 8" deep along the shore & got a reading of about 55 F...not sure how much colder the middle of the lake would be right now.

I swam in Kent Lake on Sunday in a full wet suit and it felt fine. After a few minutes I wasn't cold anymore and I tend to get cold really easily. Another swimmer had a thermometer in and it read around 60. I'd say that's probably about right. My guess is a little closer to 65. Totally doable.

I swam Kent Lake last night without a wetsuit and had no issues whatsoever. This past week has probably really helped warm it up.

I found a sprint, the Lake Las Vegas Triathlon, that was happening four months down the road and signed myself up; much to the surprise of friends and family.

I have Bontrager Race Lite wheels. I was looking into renting Zipp 303's or 404's for race day for Ironman Lake Placid. What time will I save?

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.

A description of my experiences during my first triathlon. It was a great experience. I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been.

If you are calm while everyone around you is losing it, you probably don’t know what the hell is going on.
