Iron Mike's Marathon Swims The life so shorte, the crafte so long to lerne

Quick update on first Russian open water swim

June 11, 2017 / by ironmike

This will just be a quick update on my first Russian open water swim as I’m tired from a busy weekend.

Eurasia Swim Cup in the heart of Moscow!

Check that out. Wonder when those pools open?

This hidden gem is only 10k (driving) from my house!

Testing the water. Cold.

Rash prone areas covered? Check!

Stupidly forgot the sunscreen, so the wife slathered the areas that tend to burn.

All the 5.8k swimmers had to wear a buoy.

I’m out there somewhere. Notice no sun!

Easy to find me when I’m the only skins swimmer

Almost done

For some reason the young lady on the right wanted my picture, and dragged her friend in too. She doesn’t look enthused
