The Starting Line (July 2012)
Becky Dey of Champaign has always loved being in the water, but it was when she was recovering from a running injury that she got more serious about swimming.
Dey took some swim lessons in the mid-1990s, joined a master’s swim team and then started swimming more in open water.
“I always liked swimming outdoors, in rivers and lakes,” she said.
Check out the Fisher Fair 5K on Saturday if you’re looking for a fun race to run. It always gets a good crowd. I’m waiting to race again until the following weekend and the Bagelfest in Mattoon.
Here’s the list of races for the next couple of weekends:
