And it begins again: Great Chesapeake Bay Swim

The following email arrived in my inbox earlier this week, just a couple days after I mourned the end of the open-water swimming season:

4.4 MILE GREAT CHESAPEAKE BAY SWIM PUBLIC OPEN-LOTTERY 2012 REGISTRATION OPENS ON TUES. NOV. 1, 2011 BY 8 A.M.

Lottery Registration will remain open to all until Tues. January 3, 2012, 8 a.m. when the ability to register into the lottery will be closed.

4.4 NAME SELECTIONS WILL BEGIN ON WED. JANUARY 4, 2012. 8 A.M.

Name selections will be conducted in random batches of 50 within each selection round.  This process will continue until the confirmed entrants reach the count of 700.  Emails will be sent to all selected from the registration list with detailed on-line entry instructions.

Details here.

Swimming across this bay once wasn't enough for me, apparently.

Is there any surprise that I’m planning to re-up?

    Someone asked me to do it this year and I just can’t face it. The 2.4 in the aqua velo bored so I can’t imagine doing the 4.4 unless I could get a lot faster. Good luck Amy.

  3. I would be so scard to do this !!! I thought I was going to die just doing an ows clinic in the chesapeake

  4. I think you have convinced me to sign up for the lottery! The race is a whole other story. Though if I do register, I’m stalking you and crashing a lot of your workouts. 🙂

  5. DUH DUH DUHHHH. not surprised at all!

  6. Nope, no surprise there. Can’t wait to see what you can do next year now that you have the experience under your belt of what it’s really like. Go AMY!
