Well, I have decided on a new goal following Ironman Arizona in November 2010. I will train for, and do everything in my power to, successfully complete a swim across the English Channel in the summer of 2013! Many of my friends and family think I am certifiable. I, don’t think so. Frankly, I enjoy setting goals that seem somewhat “out of the ordinary” and reaching them!
In a straight line, at its narrowest point (Dover, England to Cap Gris Nez, France) the English Channel is 21 miles across. According to the Channel Swimming Association, however, I will swim much further due to tides and currents.
Until November 21, 2010, I will be mostly occupied with training for IMAZ. I will, however, let you know what I am doing regarding my Channel goal as often as possible. I’d like you to follow me on what is sure to be a FANTASTIC journey!
