Dark and Early
Thank you to Nigel and Ralph for letting me join them for their 5:15 a.m. bay swim this morning. My alarm went off at 4:15 and it was easier to get up than yesterday. Maybe going to bed at 7:45 p.m. helped. Yesterday I asked Nigel yesterday if they wear glowsticks at that hour and he said no, but that they would today for me. With goggles on and the fog and water that is as dark as the sky it is comforting to be able to see the people I am swimming by the little glowsticks tucked under their goggle straps.
