Seeking marathon swim recommendations in US
Preferably eastern US but west not out of the question.
I had planned on an EC relay but the required 10 day quarantine wouldn't have worked given other obligations, much as I loved the idea--discovered I LIKE chilly water!
But instead of moping and regretting, I'd like to undertake a cool Plan B swim. And I'd be grateful for recommendations.
I'm already signed up for the Great South Bay Swim and Swim the Suck. I plan to enter the Bender Memorial Marathon Swim when entries open.
Thinking just one more 10k-10 mile.... and the Kingdom Swim 10 miler comes to mind. I was very impressed w Shannon Keegan's interview w Phil White and have heard excellent reports about him as a race director.
The swim takes place a couple wks after Great South Bay (5ish miles). That can be good...or a problem....depending how GSB goes.
Would be good prep for the Bender swim (8 miles) which would be good prep for STS.
That's my thought.... others?.
