Tex Robertson Highland Lakes Challenge (This weekend!)
Probably a bit late to post this, but there's a great swim down in Austin, Texas this week: The Tex Robertson Highland Lakes Challenge Its a very relaxed, fun environment, typically draws 20-30 swimmers. It's a stage race with 5 swims in 5 different lakes, similar to SCAR, only with distances suitable for the common man (2.5 to 4.5 miles). You don't have to do all 5 days, in fact, only about 3-5 swimmers typically do all 5 days. Most come for just the weekend stages (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Each day also offers a 1-mile option. No escorts required! I saw several folks in Chattanooga last weekend who were planning on doing Highland Lakes. Join us!

Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought be down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead..."
