Thanks Argonaut columnist for Penguin swim article

To the Editor:

Congratulations on The Argonaut article about the annual Penguin Swim. With the article coming out on Wednesday [because of the holiday] you are motivating more people to gear up and participate in this health-conscious activity. It inspires people to ask more of themselves physically. Just in time.

Betsy Goldman’s article conveys a valuable historic understanding of what Mary McGurk and her family and associates do to make this event possible.

And also a thank-you to the lifeguards.

Julian Myers, Marina del Rey
