Erica Sutherland and Coach Cokie Lepinski both competed in the Lake del Valle Open Water swims on June 9th. We actually swam two open water swims each that day, both without wetsuits (definitely didn’t need them). The first was the USMS 1-Mile Open Water Championships. The second was a 2.5K swim held about 45 minutes after the first race. The water was low 70s, air temp very comfortable and conditions great for the first swim and a little choppy on the second swim as the wind came up. Still, it was a gorgeous day! These two swims were Erica’s first open water competitions, and she was terrific. I think she might be hooked, too!
