Lake Tahoe: The Giant Blue Advil

July 17, 2015

When we were in Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago, we met a super sweet local who called the lake the “Giant Blue Advil” because of it’s healing powers. She also told us that the key to open water swims in Lake Tahoe is diving down 10 feet and drinking the cold clean water. I think I might drown if I attempted that maneuver but the thought alone is refreshing! 

Swimming in Lake Tahoe was a magical, almost zen like experience. Tyler and I did two separate 1.5 mile open water swims on the east side of the lake near Sand Harbor in prep for our upcoming half ironman. Swimming in some of the most iconic, crystal blue waters in all of Lake Tahoe was much better (in my opinion) that swimming in the murky ocean water of Souther California. 

We are just over two months away from Lake Tahoe Ironman 70.3! Who’s coming to hang? We promise there will be a beach day here (at Chimney Beach) the day after the race.
