    My dad just put together a short video of "highlights" of my MIMS swim last summer! I'll try to get some more of the video up when I go home this summer - pretty sure he has about 6 hours of riveting footage total:

    Great fun, as long as you're not the one the NYPD is ordering out of the water...

    Entry for SCAR Swim 2014 coming soon. Here is a clip of the 2013 swims which had 12 Triple Crown swimmers participate. Not a bad early season warm up for channel swimmers.

    "Crossing Hell's Mouth tells the story of Frank Chalmers, an open water swimmer who is setting off on the challenge of his life. Having successfully swum the English Channel, Frank has been training for over a year in preparation for his toughest swim yet; to cross the Pentland Firth."

    Adam Walker successfully crossed the Cook Channel.
    He started 21th April around 09:00 h New Zealand time and finished in 8 hours 36 min the 6th and in his words hardest of the 7 Oceans.
    Now all that's left is the 'easier' North Channel between Scotland and Ireland to become the fifth person to complete the 7 oceans.
    They saw a shark but dolphins came to the rescue!
    Read more about it on his website and Twitter page.

    We finally got a copy of Driven and watched it last night. I clapped, I cheered, I even cried a little. Very cool! =D>

    It's always a bad hair day when you work at a pool.

    Here's one a bit different(I think, but don't we all). I was swim guiding a friend around our local area (Ireland SE) for what I thought was a trip for him to film the caves. What resulted was to me something entirely unexpected. It's 18 mins long and needs sound. I can say I did not know he was doing any of this until I saw the finished product.

    @swimmer25k Wow. That was some inspiring stuff. I think every one of those songs have been on a my pre-swim playlist (or "mix tape," as it were) at some point, except for that unholy P-Diddy sampling of Kashmir (BLASPHEMY!). Next time someone asks you if you "have any predictions for the swim," go with this one:

    Well done...

    Thank you very much. I'm having back surgery #7 this Tuesday, so yet another opportunity for a comeback. My next swim (if and when) will be Catalina. I need to get the Triple Crown done. I've got fast EC and MIMS times and I'd like to have the lowest overall cumulative time (no idea what it is).

    Working title for that movie is "Seasons in the Abyss" (title taken from a great Slayer ballad) and "Eye of the Tiger" is on the soundtrack. It started out as a goof, but then I listened to the lyrics. They seem appropriate for what I'll have to do.

    Craig (my trainer in the EC swim) will be at the hospital this week for some sweet video recording of my suffering. Can't wait.

    Here's some footage of a great open water stroke. This is Patti Bauernfeind yesterday in the Cook Strait.

    She finished successfully in 8 hrs 10 min.

    In 2014, Patti completed the first trans-Monterey Bay solo swim since 1980, documented here:

    With all the rave reviews, I'm anxious to see this video, but when I tried to open it, I got a message saying it was private. I tried signing in to Youtube and still no luck. Suggestions? Thanks!

    Enjoyed part 2 just as much plus some! But here's the scary thing.... the thought pops into my head as I watch... could I do that? Certainly not nearly as fast, that I know. And really, my stretch goal now is 8 miles. What am I even thinking!

    If you can swim for 3 hours, you can go for 13. Dedicate yourself to the training and get your head right. It's all up to you.

    Let's see how the 8 miles goes! Even 5.5 took me 3:20 last year! But never say 'never'! Each goal reached opens the door to another....a great, albeit a little unnerving aspect of swimming. (Similar thinking operated for me as a runner. First, try running a mile...then a 5k....10k...Half marathon. ...ok, ok, a marathon. ... but that's it! Butwhat about qualifying for Boston....so the quest continued. Got into Boston. Hooked on running.... series of injuries and illnesses followed....then masters swimming beckoned. Still run, but my dream goals are swims these days!

  • dpm, I quoted you in my Daily Calendar..."Each goal reached opens the door to another." I LOVE this thought. Thank-You!!! Goals come from Dreams and Dreams come from Wild Imaginings!!! The idea and possibility that you can doing anything through consistent effort & determination, makes the seemingly impossible, possible. Goal achievement is incremental and cumulative. Each day is preparation for the next! Here's to "Wild Imaginings" and opening the next door. Again, THANKS. RLM Here's one for you..."We begin to understand BEFORE we understand!"
