Skaneateles Weekend

Every year as many of my family members as can make visit Skaneateles to visit Mom (97 this year) and enjoy one last week of summer recreation. 

For those who aren’t content to just enjoy the beauty of Skaneateles Lake
 or dine in their restaurants
 or shop,

they have races.  This year I competed for the fifth time in the Skinnyman Triathlon and for the first time in the Race from the Judge, which is a mile-long swim from the dinner cruise boat Judge Ben Wills.
 There is also a bike time trial (all uphill) which I judiciously avoided.  Maybe next year.

 I took second place in my age group in the triathlon and finished the mile swim in 32 minutes 31 seconds which was just 13 minutes slower than the first place finisher. They have some fast swimmers here.
