WaveOne Swimming founder Denis Crean featured in Northern Virginia magazine, re possible English Channel attempts:
Is anybody going to Greensboro NC for the USMS Short Course Nationals?
Anyone interested in a little racing this Sat afternoon? Just signed up for this small scy meet at Severna Park Community Ctr. Pre-entry closes thurs noon, but there's deck entry too.
Ever wonder what it's like to climb Mt. Everest, cycle up the Alps, run a 2:30 marathon--
or swim the English Channel?
If so, join WaveOne, with FOUR athletes who have actually done the latter.
In an online discussion, Wednesday, January 21!:[%7B%5C%22surface%5C%22%3A%5C%22share_link%5C%22%2C%5C%22mechanism%5C%22%3A%5C%22share_link%5C%22%2C%5C%22extra_data%5C%22%3A%7B%5C%22invite_link_id%5C%22%3A435442547812466%7D%7D]%22%7D

That was an exhilarating and excellent 7:30 a.m. swim practice today with Coach Barb and the rest of the Alexandria gang. I am really glad that I decided to participate once again. I can feel the health benefits already. One small issue though: I hope that we can get rid of the 1960s punch card method.
"Hi Folks -
Final Luray Swim of the Season…. Confirmed. Saturday from 9-10:30 AM.
Hi folks - its confirmed. Last swim of the season is Saturday. We will only have one wave of swimmers. You are welcome to bring friends or family that are 13 or over and they do not have to memebers of Lane 4 Masters, US Masters Swimming, OR USA Triathlon.
We have 20 registrations so far, to give you an idea of how much space will be out there right now (vice 50 or so in the first wave the last two swims). It will be nice and spread out - and the weather is supposed to be magnificent.
Come on out - bring a friend who does not swim if you like, its worth the trip. Really pretty drive and there has been relatively little traffic out there aside from us… so its great off leash with the pups at that time of the day (as long as they behave and are under control).

Is anybody interested is taking my spot for 6 am swimming tomorrow? I have swimmer’s ear and need to keep it dry for a few days.
