Are You Crazy Enough To Swim Pre-Dawn in the Rockies?

World Champion triathlete Josiah Middaugh is a bonafide crazy person. Well, he is in my mind anyway. I woke up at 5am in the dead of winter to catch the end, just the end of his workout at the outdoor salinity pool at the Weston in Avon. He trains there before dawn, three days a week, and I’m glad I didn’t have to get in the water with him. He gave us a few minutes after his workout to shoot some quick portraits for Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine, and was even a good enough sport to stand out in the cold, soaking wet in his swim gear, which is essentially nothing at all.
