Paris à la Nage
If you haven’t noticed, I love having new experiences. Swimming has long been a passion of mine (I’m a picsces afterall), and I keep myself entertained – and sane – in Paris swimming pools by writing about said experiences (see here and here – talk about a cultural experience!). So I’m excited to announce that I’ll be swimming my first long distance, open water swim in the Seine on September 2nd. I kind of love telling people because I either get a “that’s awesome” or “eww, that’s disgusting” response. At least I opted for the 2.5km rather than the 10km, Olympic distance. Either way, if you’re in Paris on Sept 2nd, come cheer me and 2,999 other swimmers on! (There may be a few slots left, but last week it sounded like it was getting full!). In the meantime, stay tuned for more Paris swimming pool tales to come, because, man, do I have stories!
p.s. If anyone has wetsuit advice or ideas of how cold the water is going to be, please share in the comments!
