Locals Participate in Annual New Year's Day Two-Mile Swim
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
It may have been a chilly morning around the Coastal Bend on New Year's Day, but for some, it was the perfect weather for a swim.
At the City's Collier Public Swimming Pool, some young and not-so-young swimmers took part in the annual New Year's Day two-mile swim. It is a chance for long-distance water enthusiasts to test their endurance as they count the number of laps they have completed.
"The ages range from high schoolers to mid- to upper-50s," swimmer Therese Casey said. "Most of the people have done these swims years before. They just come back every year to improve their time and come back and see everybody."
