Video and short article

July 22, 2009

The observer, Mikee Phillips, made a short 8 minute video of my Channel swim.  The music by Mark Masey is beautiful as is the video work by Mikee, so take a look.

In addition, here is a small article by Molle Francisco from the Chaska Herald.  (Note: Chaska, MN is where I grew up).

    This video was really great… so fun to “experience” a glimpse into the day and this extraordinary event.

    This is so inspiring! I could almost FEEL the water. Nice video, too. I hope you don’t mind me putting it up as a shared link on my FB page.

    Michelle; came across you writings on Marks blog. I have no aspiration of being a channel swimmer but do swim (short distance) with Pat Charette. Pat unfortunately did not get to swim this year due to the weather and your comments only reinforce for me how difficult a crossing is an how many things have to fall into place including feelings in the heart. I guess mother nature turned a kinder face to the swimmers today.
    I have the utmost admiration for anyone with the will, determination and talent to cross that stretch of water. We are now looking forward with Pat to 2011 and swims in between.
    Thanks for the blog

    Beautiful video! It’s a whole other level of appreciation that the pictures don’t give you – a remarkable accomplishment.
