This time last year, I was crawling from the Okanagan and wandering up the shores of Penticton as I completed my swim.
The year has flown by and so much has happened, but the clearest memory I have was when I completed this swim.
I wanted to just take a moment to all of those who helped with this ‘project’, especially my parents, my wife Lisa, my son Mason, Gordie, Richard, Trudy and all of the other folks who volunteered or who hung out with us along the way.
What’s next for 2012?
Well, not much. However, I am still trying to initiate some very basic planning for something I’d like to do next year: a swim ‘relay’ in Lake Ontario. The basic concept is that if there were 100 people swimming and we all did a 10km swim, we’d cover the entire perimeter of Lake Ontario. I wouldn’t actually want it to be a relay because that would be too damn complicated, but instead just be one big massive swim from Point A to Point B and then we add up all of the distances covered.
Who’s on board? Where should we do it from? When should we do it? Should we do it as a fundraiser or just do it … because?
Tell me what you think and how you might be able to help.
