9-22-13 at 9 am, six unknowns set out to swim Devils Lake in Baraboo, WI.
I was told it was 59 degrees, but I don't think it was quite that warm. Water temperature was unknown and we wanted it to stay that way until we got in.
IT WAS COLD!
We conquered the lake! Not that time was important to us, but the fastest Mermaid came in around 35 minutes! WOW! I was third at 55 minutes. Everyone finished! We were all at different levels of swimming. One Mermaid had only learned to swim in April via YouTube! How amazing is that!!
An amazing day spent with amazing people! Our support people in the boats, on shore and walking the hiking trail along side the lake, are appreciated more than they will ever know!
Now we're thinking about what's next? Sky diving?
By the way, after we were done, we were told it is really 1.5 miles! OMG!
