Family and friends,
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you who supported my swim(s). The English Channel was a long haul and one made slightly harder by the sea conditions and jellyfish. Otherwise, it was an unremarkable day. I felt the love and support from all of you before, during and after the swim and that made me very happy. When we returned at 4am from the boat, I was overcome with emotions from the outpouring of support via Facebook, Twitter, Email, and even voicemail. Thanks to you all. I am heading over to the White Horse right now with my crew (Kat and Patrick) to sign the wall, enjoy a pint, and take some pictures. See you in a few hours when I begin recounting the swim. After a pint, I may not make much sense so I apologize in advance for the word salad I may spread before you.
P.S. Despite my objections, I may try for the Triple Crown in August and go for the record of shortest time to complete all 3 swims. More (much more) on that later; for now, the siren call of a pint at the White Horse keeps yelling at me to visit.
P.P.S. Kat wants to swim. Needless to say, I don't. I am going down to the beach with her first so she can swim and then we hit the pub. How's that for teamwork?
In April 2014, I attempted to climb Mt. Everest before an avalanche in the icefall claimed the lives of 18 Sherpa. A year later (May 2015), I returned to Mt. Everest only to witness a 7.8 earthquake while at camp 1. I am preparing to climb again in April 2018 but this blog is dedicated to my purposeful pursuits. Please be sure to check out the charities that I support and follow me on twitter (@pem725) or instagram (pem725).
