Catalina Channel Swim – 8 Hours

October 7, 2008

Jane – “I have been giving her messages. She is doing great. At least she is still talking to her crew. The water has gotten a little colder. Which means she is getting closer.”

Well hopefully this has cuaght the early risers over in the states, this is the hard yards part of the swim , so if anyones got some good motivational stuff for the young lady, please feel free to send them and I’ll pass them on.

Update – thanks for the comments and messages, they have been passed on to Jane and Katie, and yes they really do help, when she has “lost her humour” 😉

    You go girl! Your fellow Nike employees are so proud of you. There is a bubble of prayer around you from my women’s group. The incredible accomplishments you do in aiding the research for breast cancer has inspired us all. I know I sound like Dori, but just keep swimming. Love you!!
