Why document a swim?
At the tail end of a great summer of swimming, I'm thinking I might like to go farther than I've gone before. I just mapped out a 21k perimeter swim around my local training lake. Doubt it's been done before, but not sure that I care about that. However, I am debating whether it's worth putting some friends on a motor boat in addition to the friends in kayaks, and going through the whole process of documenting it. I'm intrigued 'cause I've never done that before (big swims have all been organized events), but also have a niggling worry that it's much ado about... well....not nothing, but maybe nothing to anyone other than me. How do you decide when to document, and when to just go for a good, long swim?
