“This is Boulder. We don’t get pale, we just get cold!”
- Michael Lovato

So cold right now
So cold right now

Indeed indeed. When it comes to swimming, Boulder seems to think it’s in the tropics. People swim outside, regardless of whether it’s 13 degrees (yesterday) or 9 (Friday, when I actually wussed out and went to the indoor short-course yards pool, oh how inferior, at North Boulder Rec Center. Julie Dibens and Mirinda Carfrae were there too. But yesterday, since it was New Year’s Day, my indoor options were closed and I had to suck it up).

Luckily, I bought a swim parka at the very first hint of icky winter, so the long walk between the pool and inside isn’t too unbearable. The most treacherous thing right now is the ice, which is on the walkways and pool deck as well as on any pool toys left on the deck for more than a few minutes.

    MUCH better to swim outside, even in the cold, than swim at indoor pools – blech! We do the same thing here in CA, though it only gets into the 20s at the coldest. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
