...but Portsmouth, NH was great!!
Anyways, going back to my original post, "What are YOU doing to prepare?!?" I have been SO AMPED for my chance to swim ever since I heard news of Mack and Emma's amazing successes 08/06 (13hr 5mins and 14hr 33mins, respectively) as well as the amazing Diana Nyad's swim from Cuba to Florida (although she didn't finish, I still have the highest respect for her and what she stands for).
To help everyone else be as amped as I am, I will providing my checklist for the things I plan to bring:
List of people to meet, places to go, and things to so...check!
My "can do ALL" attitude...check!
A big smile...check!
Beer money from Elaine Howley for afterwards at the White Horse Pub...check!
...lastly and most importantly, I need to remember to breath (this is very difficult for me sometimes :D)
Bon voyage!!! England Channel, here I come!!!
