Started my training for the Labor Day 2015 Mackinac Straits swim. OK, so I’m 165th on the waiting list. AND, I’m also optimistic. They’re opening the swim up to more swimmers — and I hope to be one of them.
So far, I am swimming just every other day and on the off days lifting and walking. Will move to two miles per swim next week, with some kicks and drills.
That bridge and that body of water have played a big part in my life, from the time I was born. I’d be thrilled and honored to do the swim.
