Battling the Boredom

Cold Day on the Boat!

Cold Day on the Boat!

Over the last few weeks, I have trained in a lake in Tennessee, the Chesapeake Bay and in my “home river” – the Rappahannock. Matt has accompanied me on nearly every training swim since the beginning of April and, as you might imagine, all of those hours watching me swim – either from land or on the boat – can result in some pretty significant boredom. Thankfully, for most of those swims, Matt has had someone along for the ride. My mom kept him company when I swam at Buckroe Beach in the Bay. Our friends Sarah, Frank, Kelly, Jaime, Jordi, Mark and Myrna have put in significant crew time on the boat over the last month. And, we had one pit stop to visit our friends Bill and Patti.  Thanks to all of this support – I’m ready for the season to officially begin!

One of the things Matt does to pass the time is to record video and, in particular, commentary. I’ve selected a couple of clips from the last few weeks. I’ve also attached a smattering of pictures from our adventures this Spring. Season starts officially next Sunday with my 11th Chesapeake Bay Swim!
