I'm thinking of heading to Richmond for the Cold Water / Fast Current OWS this Saturday. Is anybody else going / interested in carpooling?
Currently 55 deg down there and dropping. Let us know how it goes.
Thanks - I corresponded with the Peluso folks and they confirmed that the race is still on, and the water temp is around 61 (?). I'm racing St. George in 2 weeks, and the temps at Sand Hollow are about the same, so hopefully this will be a good (if cold) test run. :)
If anyone wants to join me, I live in DC and am happy to pick up en route!
Although too cold for this wimp, 61 sounds better than 55.
I was looking at the USGS site for the river which measures the temp and other stats up river a bit in Cartersville, VA. Saw that the OWS site said it's within a couple deg of that reading.
Median temp yesterday was 57.5, http://goo.gl/wcWhu4
