BENEFITING: HABITAT FOR HUMANITY-REBUILD MICHIGAN
EVENT: Mighty Mac Swim 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2016
This is my second attempt at this event. Even though I was swimming a long swim of at least a mile and a half every week last summer, with the serious winds blowing us toward Lake Huron and the waves moving us up and down almost as much as we were moving forward, I had to make a tough decision. After two hours and swimming a third of the way across, I decided to jump in the support boat to help my teammates out for the rest of the day, and to train a lot more this year and try it again.
So this year, as soon as we get some open water, the weekly long swims get lengthened to 3 miles or more every week. This time I'm going all the way across.
