"Sure, I'd love to go to prenatal yoga!" (Let me remind you that I am not pregnant. Also, I really need to tell you the rest of this story. Because it's ridiculous and so good.)
"I actually really like working on crisis communications!" (This story is not as interesting.)
"All day I've been looking forward to swimming in open water!" (I know, right? Who am I?)
But can you really blame me for watching the clock so I could get to this ASAP?

Yes, those are buoys. And there were also lifeguards in kayaks. That's right: An organized, well-supported open water swim in a cool lake on a sunny day. And this happens Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at Lake Nokomis and Mondays at Cedar Lake throughout the summer for a mere $35 one-time swim club membership fee.
Minneapolis is bomb. And man, it felt incredible to get in that water and try to swim in a straight line.
But wait: It gets better.
A solid swim effort should never go unrewarded. Afterward, I treated myself to Thai tea ice cream from Milkjam Creamery, which is pretty much where I'd like to retire and spend the rest of my years.
