Sometimes it’s the non-goal events that remind me of why I love endurance sports. Wednesday was the annual Seeüberquerung (lake crossing) in Zurich.  Over 10,500 local people showed up to make the 1500m swim–an impressive stat highlighting how sporting mad the area is.

I was quite a bit slower than previous years with a 35:00 time…when you only swim 1x a week at best, I shouldn’t have expected to do any better.  Onwards…
