~ The unlikely saga of a middle-aged mom of twin second-graders and an Athena triathlete ~
Ewww. And I'm planning to maybe SWIM in that next August?
OMG - that frightens me.
you will glow in the dark!Unfortunately they haven't had the clean up campaign like PA, MD & VA did for the Chesapeake.
That is scary. A couple years ago during a local triathlon a bunch of the athletes got sick afterwards. The cause was some bacteria imbalance.I have one thing going though my head during most open water swims because of this "Don't drink the water!"
eewwww. yuck. this is why open water swims scare me.
Actually, I think it's fine to swim in as long as bacterial counts are okay and you don't happen to swallow any fish or drink the contents of your wetsuit. :-)
These warnings inlude alot of the fish you eat at restraunts and buy in grocery strores (ie salmon). Mercury accumulation is a serious issue especially for women, children and particularly pregnant women. Scary hah! Bottom line, eat fish, but not too much. This is the world we live in.
Isn't it just sick what we do to this planet?
Yeah, PCB's are the reason for the Link to the Carolina Lake Projects on my site. One of our biggest triathlons is run every year in a lake with increasing PCB's even though the offending company has long since changed its practices. Water qaulity is always my top priority in choosing a race. I wonder how the gulf of mexico will be after the runoff from Katrina's damage?
YOU should read how Chlorine kills us with cancer..i'll take a 30 min swim in Lake Michigan for SH, than swimming in a chlorinated pool anytime!!! I swim in a saline pool..love it, no skin irritation, no more faded swim suits...etc
eewwww.....the joy of open water swims!
30 minute swim for a half IM? I need YOU for a coach, Shelley! I am SO FAR FROM THAT it's not even funny!!!And I would LOVE a saline pool. I don't even know of any around here. Gotta look for one.
Love the gifts you want. Its stupid that those flasks are so expensive
Do I have to give up fish too!?! GROSS. I echo It's Only Fuel:When will we learn to take care of our planet??!?!and great about Chlorine and cancer!! ugh.
Not to mention the poor fish. Yes, it is scary what we do to the environment.
