I regularly swim Alki Beach in West Seattle, WA with a group of swimmers known as the "Notorious Alki Swimmers." Many don't wear wetsuits, even in winter! They're amazing people who are a constant source of inspiration and motivation.
This post will be ongoing as I go to Alki nearly every weekend. I like to swim a 1.2-.3 mile stretch of beach, from the bathhouse to the lighthouse and back. I am working up mileage to swim 2.5 miles from the bathhouse to the condos on the other side of the point and back to the bathhouse. It's jellyfish season so I have to work up the bravery for it!
