Update: Emily's 9-Miler

posted July 15, 2007 @ 9:49 PM  |  Meets, Open Water, and Other Events category

We continued our training this weekend with a 9-mile swim Saturday morning (at 5:30am) on Long Island, New York. Check out Dean and Emily's below route which began from Short Beach in St. James to Porpoise Channel in Stony Brook, then back again in a little less than five and one-half hours. There's only three more weeks until Minnesota. (Welcome to marathon swimming!)

On Sunday, we garnished our training with another 3.5 mile "short" swim in 1 hour 45 minutes.

Here's a photo directly after Saturday's swim:

Emily, you continue to amaze and delight us. Congratulations on all the hard work you've put in so far. It won't be long and you'll be in the familiar waters of lovely Big Birch Lake. We are looking forward to cheering you on as you embark on the BIG SWIM! We love you loads, Jeff & Rita

Emily,
Way to go!
Life is full of so many challenges. For some they are unavoidable, such as serious health issues, physical or mental/cognitive disabilities, or other barriers. But some people, as you are doing, recognize that and challenge yourself to go beyond your day to day capabilities to do something extreme, something that others may not be able to do. For that, we are very proud of you!
Not sure if we'll make it to the lake for the BIG SWIM, but you will definitely be in our thoughts and prayers!
I do hope that this experience, as shared by all who know you, is truly a reminder to cherish what we have, use our abilities and strengths as best we can, and challenge ourselves in our own special way to make our life and the lives of others better in whatever way we can...even if only through a smile or a kind word.
Thank you, Emily, for reminding us of this!
Tawnya
