After competing in triathlons for 9 years, I decided it was time to try something different. In the back of my mind I had always had this idea that I would try to swim the English Channel some day. Now, after almost 2 years of distance swimming training, that day is almost here!

Not so good news
Well, I just got off the phone with Eddie my pilot. It now looks like the only swimmable day is Saturday and even it is questionable. Since I am in second slot, I won't be able to swim this year unless something changes. I am going to try to pursue a couple other avenues before throwing in the towel. I'm persistent if nothing else. I also have a good head cold now and have spent most of the day in bed. But, these things are a part of channel swimming. There are no guarantees. I won't give up until there's no other option.
