I will be at Sandy Point swimming from 7-9 am on Monday morning. Want to join me? Not a clinic - I haven't been in the water in a few weeks and need to regain my feel for it before my next race.
I'm In! might car pooling be an option?
Let me know - I think you have my email...if not: hhertler AT me Dot com
Hmm, sounds interesting. Could bring my bike and running shoes too for an Annapolis jaunt afterwards.
Here's the standard bike route, 24 miles. Can cut it short by heading back to Sandy Pt. instead of going up Rte. 2:
I am a definite possibility.
I could be up for a little open water and a bike ride.
Sounds like a great way to wake up :)
Sounds good, I think I'll go.
Whats the deal with the Jelly Fish during the early morning hours???
I plan to go tomorrow at around 10 am, not early morning, but I'll let you know about the jelly fish.
Tammy, this sounds cool. I am pretty sure that I will be there on Monday. Nothing like swimming in the bay early in the morning.
Word has it that if you swim fast enough, the jelly fish will bounce right off of you.
Here's a link to the nettle forecast. Doesn't look too bad. Last time I was out there (month ago), the nettles were out in full force and I was stung half-dozen times. It was annoying, not painful, and I kept swimming.
I was there less than 48 hours ago and there were none to be found. There was, however, a 50+ year old guy there with a thong. Not a Euro speedo ... A THONG! I kid you not. If there isn't a law against that, there should be. I think that I would rather be stung by a thousand jellyfish in both of my eye sockets.
I swam at 9:30 am this morning and didn't see any jelly fish either. I wish there was someone else swimming with me because it was quite scary to swim alone in the murky and choppy water. I'm a decent swimmer but I'm used to swim with other competitors in the lake or river and being surrounded by lifeboats. Where was the guy with a thong when I needed him?
I am in, do you want to carpool?
Sure. I sent you an email about carpooling. Going into my office to work for the afternoon but you can email or call me.
I'm good with a ride (hubby and child will brave early thirty with me)
See you there.
I'm in...I was planning on going up there alone until I saw this thread. I haven't been to Sandy Point since I was a kid, is there a certain spot your planning to meet up at?
Parking lot, outside bath house, or beach.
At that hour, there'll be few there but us endorphin addicts...
Is anyone available to give give me a ride? I live in NW but can meet anywhere in the city.

Thanks for the shoutout, Tammy Wombat. That was a fun and challenging swim in the choppy waves.
