In its second year the NW YMCA swimathon was set up as a battle of the sexes men vs women. I drove up this morning before church with a friend of mine to put in some time for the men. The allure of a tshirt had me aiming for 10,000 yds. It took me right around 2 hrs and 20 minutes. The overall effort was not as bad as I was expecting having not gone that far before, however it became a little hard to lift the arms out of the water in the last 1000. The most amazing part was the support given by friends and family in the amount of $150. I continue to feel very blessed to find these different ways I can use my talents to help others and know that there are many people supporting my efforts.
