I swam at least a mile 5 times last week. Good! I am getting stronger.
I rented my wetsuit (with arms). Phew. I will not freeze to death.
I collected info from a guy at the Y who swam last year. His words: It is not the sharks, the cold or the currents that get there. That provides all the drama. It is the fact that right when you are about to jump off the ferry a huge tanker honks its horn and the whole race has to stop so all 500 participants do not get run over. Egads. I did not even think to be scared of tankers!!!
Comments from Jonathan's relatives. His aunt. A dull stare. No comment. Just incredulity. His father. It's good that she takes care of herself (like this is an elaborate form of aerobics)
