one little post won’t be enough to cover all that has happened since Feb 2012 but I can begin!
In 2012 I was asked to join an international relay team that would swim from Russia to Alaska, this was a great honor and a great undertaking.  The year moved on towards summer with endless politics and plans, ups and downs.  In the meantime I was training in cold alpine lakes and rivers in snow and wind trying to find conditions that would replicate some of what we would face in the Bering sea.  The cold seemed real but the plan dream like.  I spent many hours researching conditions and currents and sharing them with the organizers of the team.
