This morning, Colin’s Hope Got2Swim hosted a practice swim on Lake Travis. We normally would have knocked out a 2 hour swim, but early last week, Barrett was hit with a severe sinus infection which took him out for most of the week. After a visit to the doctor on Tuesday, the doctor prescribed strong antibiotics and LOTS OF REST. We heeded the doctors orders and decided to join the swim group this morning. The plan was to swim short, nice, and easy. This morning we had about 7 swimmers and 5 water guardians. We entered the water around 6:45 AM just as the sun was coming up–a great way to start the day. The group planned a 90 minute swim (45 minutes out and then turn around and come back). Light boat traffic made for smooth water for all (even the SUP). Each swimmer is doing their part to raise water safety awareness and there is still much work to be done. This morning’s news included reports of two more drownings. A 15 year-old boy in Canyon Lake and another in Lake Corpus Christi State Park. Help us help the organization spread the word. Colin’s Hope Got2Swim 10K swim will be held on September 2 and we are all doing our part to raise money. If you have already donated, your support is appreciated and we say thank you on behalf of the organization!
