I've got just over 5 weeks to get ready. Fortunately, under this layer of fat lies a lean mean swimming machine which, covered with warm buoyant neoprene from neck to ankles on the day of the event should do just fine.

The 5K course will start at the North Shore neighborhood marina, go east toward the dam on Blackhall Road and back.

I must say that I'm looking forward to this event. It's rare that the southside of Atlanta is able to draw such a prestigious event. Much of the reason for the event being at Lake Spivey has to do with Swim Across America's affiliation with the small community of former Olympic swimmers and Steve Lundquist's connection with the lake.
