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…
Playing Cribbage with my Dad at my parents’ apartment. I’m reading your blog with my parents. We are all wishing you the best with your swim. Judy and Vince send their best wishes too.
We’re thinking of you Rod and hoping for calm winds on Tuesday. All the best to you and your team!
You can do it!!!!!
Hi Guys…..we are SO rooting for you Rod!!! We hope you are having fantastic time over there and keep the pictures coming!
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
OMG I’m so excited for you!!! My thoughts are going to the “Channel Gods” and hope for great weather and a perfect swim. Watch out Tuesday because Rod Craig is coming your way.

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.
