Anyone else doing this one and generally NOT looking forward to the weather conditions? The water is too cold to swim in (currently 57.7 deg, below 60 = no swim, triathletes do a duathlon instead) and they are predicting rain/snow showers, high 49 degrees! Looks like I'll be doing my first Duathlon by default this year!

Ok, checked the site again today and the water temp went up to 62.9 !! Hmmm. Something smells fishy. The temp went down slowly all last week from 59.7 to a reading of 57.7 Tuesday morning, then it went up five degrees in five hours?! Looks like we're gonna swim even if there's ice on the water (No, really! It's 62 degrees, I swear!) Check it out yourself. . .
