Thursday, July 30th, we spoke with open-water swimmer Bridget Simpson, as she discussed the joy, pain, preparation and yes, even obsession that is required to swim Lake George!
There was a lot of great audience interaction, great questions about cold water preparation, and how her perspective of the lake changed as she became more experienced and familiar with its many moods.
It was a terrific presentation by Bridget, you're sure to enjoy!
