Why wait until summer to swim?

The St. Petersburg Master Swimmers made daily laps in a pool with water around 81-degrees; while the air temperature hovered around 47-degrees.

The group of about 50 people jump into the pool around 5:30 each morning and swim until 7:00.

“We’re crazy! We know it,” said one swimmer when he jumped out of the pool and scurried to the heated shower room.
