Splash and Dash Thurs May 19 Arcadia Spring Creek

Postby Jane H » Tue May 17, 2011 7:38 pm

We will be holding our first S&D for 2011 this Thursday at Spring Creek Park Arcadia Lake - 2 miles east of I-35 on 15th St. in Edmond.
Swim start will be approx. 6:30, but come early and get some warmups in before we start the 500 yard (2 lap with beach run in between laps) swim and 2 mile run. You can do your own workout if you would like to do more or less distance.
I will bring our new raceclock so you can time yourself.

Picnic of hot dogs, chips, cookies and lemonade will be provided by the Club. No charge.

Park entrance fee is either $6 or $7 a carload, so meet up with your friends and share a ride in.

The water is chilly, wetsuits recommended but not required.

Hope to see you Thursday night.

I'm in if everyone else is. A little lightning never hurt anyone.

One good thing about Arcadia is that they have a voice announcement system in addition to the traditional tornado sirens. So if it gets too severe they will announce to get out of and/or off the water.........hopefully.......

Wow, my wetsuit must've shrunk over the winter, because it's a lot more snug than it was in September.

yeah.... that's right.... it shrunk..... :P

Okay, they're saying it's probably headed for the metro now.

That's good to know about their PA system, but what worries me is how quickly we could get somewhere safe. Do they have storm shelters??

Jane and Beau (our fearless Tri-OKC board members) are out at Spring Creek. There will be no swim. If you'd like to get a fast run in and a car picnic, head on out!

Thanks Jane and Beau for putting it on. Water was cold at first but fine after a few strokes. Enjoyed it.

I'd like to point out that somehow Rian and I missed the cookies and well...all the food. Must have been that wrong turn taking us out of the park. Oh well.
