Swimming for Hope

THE STORY:

Dear Friends ~ Imagine my surprise when I showed up at 7:00 am to check-in at race headquarters for this morning's RCP Tiburon Mile open water swim just as race officials were announcing the decision to cancel this year's event due to unfavorable ebb tide conditions!  It's the first time in the event's 15 years that this step has been taken.  Big Bummer!

On the bright side, it's good:

  1. to set a goal (for me that was last year, when I decided to enter the race);
  2. to pursue it (4-5 pool workouts per week since January and twice a month swims at Aquatic Park since May); and
  3. to show up ready to go.

On the REALLY bright side, through the generosity of so many of you over $4,000 has bring raised for ReachOut USA to bring hope to youth who are struggling.

I may not be able to control the weather, but I've sure enjoyed getting ready for the race.  I also deeply appreciate the generosity, support and concern for this important cause that you have shown.  If you have any questions about your donation, or wish to support ReachOut USA's efforts, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Meantime, I will keep swimming and heed James' and Carly's advice to ride with the tide, and go with the flow.

Warmest regards, Mike
