Off to Cork!

Posted on 6.6.12

Today I set off for Ned’s long distance swim camp in Cork, Ireland. The camp will be part of my final preparations for the English Channel, and includes the 6-hour qualifying swim (in 60 degrees or cooler) necessary to attempt The Channel. I have heard harrowing stories and fables about the difficulty of the camp and Ned’s extreme motivational tactics, and I have no doubt by the end of the 100K and 10 days I will be both physically and mentally prepared. My goal for the camp is to complete as much of it as possible, while staying smart about my shoulder an properly recovering. Oh, and to not stop smiling!
