I started this run, bike, and swim blog in 2010 just after competing in the Augusta, Georgia Ironman 70.3 triathlon. I've tried to add new content over the years as my focus has shifted from and back to racing. I hope you enjoy it and will follow me as I train and compete along the way to my 3rd full Ironman in Florida on November 4th of 2017.

Lake Spivey Water Temperature
Susan and I took the boat our for a little ride this afternoon. The weather was awesome for a Saturday in mid-January. At one point during the day the temperature on my car dashboard read 81-degrees. The actual temperature was probably closer to 75-degrees. Anyway, it was way too warm for January. I decided to check the lake water temperature when we were out. I was especially interested in the temperature of the lake because I need to start swimming soon for the Try Charleston 70.3 on April 20th.
Lake Spivey water temperature at 5PM on Saturday, January 12th, 2013
As you can see, 53-degrees is way to freakin' cold to swim in the lake even with a full wetsuit.
