When this adventure back into physical fitness began some nine plus months ago, it never entered my mind that I’d be donning a wetsuit and swimming in October.  Now to those of you who live in warm climates, that might not seem like such a big deal.  But, here in the Northwest–it’s a huge deal.  Let’s just say it can get a bit cool here come September and October.  There have been many Halloweens with snow on the ground.  So the first Saturday in October, there I was in my wetsuit and neoprene cap swimming along in Lake Coeur d’Alene with two other die-hards.  And you know what??  It was fun.  Who would have guessed! 

The moral of the story:  you never really know what you’re capable of until you put your toes in the water…
