Saturday, January 12th

This morning I met up with Dave Galli and Long Distance swimming great, Jim Fitzpatrick for a dip in the Pacific at Corona Del Mar. The sun was out and the water calm. The water visibility was about 3 feet though, a murky greenish yellow. I was told the water was 54 degrees…chilly.

The fog started coming in about midway through our 45 minute swim. (Jim was in for over an hour.) We swam a little more than a 1 1/2 miles Invigorating!

At 11:30, I met up with Shane Fishbein and did a 27 1/2 ride through Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, and Laguna Hills. We did the Pacific Island Climb, Pacific Coast Highway along the Ritz to the Golden Lantern, then up to Crown Valley, Down to Cabot, and then home again on Paseo De Valencia via Laguna Hills Dr.
