We were glad to see calm waters and big buoys at race time. Of course, by the turn at the white condo for lap one, attention shifts to aching muscles and ponderings of "why do I keep doing this every year".
Those wonderings tend to fade by the second lap, only to be replaced by mind numbing general ache. Sighting on the course this year was terrific, with the chop corner cone placed squarely in front of the white condo. What more could you ask for?
Still, some tricky currents in certain areas threw off more than a few freestylers on the backstretch. Ageless perennial speedster George Wendt was on a roll and still found himself "turned sideways somehow" after one orange buoy. Butterfly pioneer Tom Boettcher noticed, "On a clear and relatively calm day like this, I can sight a pretty true, straight 5.
They should tip for the extra yardage! Speaking of doing it every year The least rusty among us are the perfect record swimmers, those few hearty Big Shoulders participants who have made every single race since its inception some twenty one years ago.
Yes, of course it was good to see Dennis Miller back again … did he miss a year along the way, or is he still part of the originals club? Tim found the course pretty routine, a little cold and flat but pleasant nonetheless and a bit more hospitable than the year when the course had to be condensed to one lap because of severe weather. George Wendt was smoking again not literally, of course, though wouldn't that be a sight! This came even as he got knocked a bit off course by an errant kick and took a goggle-full of water.
The bottom line is just what we ought to address here and now, as we honor the winners of today's race. For the 5 K swim without wetsuit, Adam Dawkins was the big winner in On the women's side, Megan Ryther won top honors in 1: Olympian Erica Rose followed up, toting a cast, while Carlie Herlich came in third.

For the wetsuit side of the men's 2. Who is that in second place? Could it be true? He runs the race, then he swims the race? Chris Sheean must have decided he was needed on shore and picked up the pace to arrive in second place. Rumor has it the alternative strokes are catching on and some newcomers took a turn, such as Tom Maude, who said, "I did swim the first full 2.
Next year, Jeff can be part of the vigilance team scanning the skies for aggressive seagulls. Big Shoulders remains a draw for the world's premier butterfliers as Olympic silver medalist Steve Gregg showed up for a special swim, one that summoned a different kind of courage.
You see, Steve showed us how to be an angel and take care for the most intrepid beginners among us. How did he do that? Volunteers like Laurie and Mark Jager signed up to usher and "shadow" newcomers around the course simply to let them know someone is there.
Says Mark,"I had already reached my own personal 5K goals, so I was glad to help Bill from Gurnee as he stuck to his goal of finishing 5K. It was fun for me! She made it out of the water with Olympian Steve Gregg at her side. When Steve comes in last, the cause of inclusive swimming comes in first.

What a great idea and nice addition to Big Shoulders. Cheers for Helen and all the courageous newcomers to the Big Shoulders community.
On the medical front, rather ironic, isn't it, that the name for such a debilitating medical incident - a "stroke"- could be shared by an action we all associate so closely with progress through the water and repeat so many times. On a day of so many swimming strokes, perhaps it is appropriate to think for a moment about medical strokes and our own vulnerability.
The National Stroke Association champions the use of the term "brain attack" in describing the symptoms, results and responses typical of a stroke, something we all should pause for a moment to study and understand. We also may thank Bill for his courageous example. With each of our powerful water strokes, we can share that certain sense of vulnerability as a Big Shoulders community.
