Bridges to bluffs — 2021
What a great day! Blaik Ogle and Jack McAfee put another great swim together this year.
A not terribly long fog delay, that was honestly a little eerie at its thickest, gave way to another gorgeous Tennessean day. Water was pleasantly cool, sun was bright and warm, and the vegetation was plentiful. ?
Every volunteer was fabulous, with a special shout-out to the NROTC kids from a local high school. They did a great job helping everyone out of the water with no slips or falls.
I first did this race two years ago, and loved the finisher award photos. I thought I’d get to get another view this year to add to my collection. But no! Blaik had a little treat up his sleeve.
Congrats to all the swimmers and paddlers who had a fun day on the river. I even made a new OWS swim friend who lives near enough to me that we could work some looong swims out to do together.
