Chesbro Reservoir, Morgan Hill, California

July 23, 2011

Went for a 1.2 mile swim in the Chesbro reservoir this morning, but parking was a sun-of-bitch. I ended up parking along the road 1/2 mile down from the starting area. It felt weird walking in nothing but Speedos along side a major road. Basically, the only place it fells right to wear Speedos is in the water.

The swim went well. It took about 40 minutes, which was OK. It was a good practice for the Swim around the Santa Cruz Pier next weekend. That one I'm a little apprehensive about. The water is 15 degrees colder than the pleasant 70 degrees in the reservoir.
