July 18, 2010 – Sunday

Just got of the phone with Andy – looks like he will take the relay team tomorrow (Monday) and then me on Tuesday. The forecast is for some rain, but otherwise sunny. The only thing that might stop us is the wind. Fingers crossed. The water temp is a little cooler than expected, but I will just have to swim faster!!!

Keep you posted…

  5. Rod,
    Remember to keep your stroke count up (greater than 60) and use your legs in an effort to stay warm.

    We have absolutely no advice on how to conduct the swim, but our hearts are with you all the way. We hope that Tuesday finds you in Calais, and we wish that we could be on the beach to greet you as you emerge from the water. Charles and Kathie

  10. Hi Rod
    Remember the last talk we had on pool deck. if i can pull in my life with all the challenges you can do this with no problem. Stay focus and make sure to have fun at the same time keep your stroke rate up, get the legs working so you can stay warm.
    We at North Shore Maters are with you and pray for you.
