I'm a marathon swimmer, like, around Manhattan and the English Channel. In the small world of pro swimming, wetsuits are not an option, but I don't foresee pools being safe for a while. With luck I can swim in the ocean for a few more months with a wetsuit. When the water gets down to 50, I'll hang it up for the season.
