Hiking and Swimming in Color Country – Swim Around Alcatraz

On Saturday I opted for some time with the kids and tried to make a workout out of it too. I wanted to hike to the top of Signal Peak, the 10,300 foot mountain overlooking St. George. It became more of a workout than I anticipated when my 9 year old decided she was spent after only a quarter of the distance and I had to carry her 80 pounds on my back. We decided to find a nice lookout and turnaround. We’ll see if it helps my biking. 🙂

On Sunday, I finalized travel arrangments to the Bay Area for the Swim Around the Rock, the annual race around Alcatraz Island. I’m excited to be one of 20 or so participants to brave the 60 degree water in this 3.25 mile race.

I did 6K swim at Summit Athletic Club on Tuesday morning.
