Today I swam the Strait of Gibraltar in a time of 3 hours and 28 minutes. The head of the Strait of Gibraltar Swim Association (ACNEG) said it was the 3rd fastest woman's time in their history. I am totally stunned. He said he has contacted the newspaper here in Spain and it will be in tomorrow's paper. Before I started my swim, I asked my son Tom to write my brother Robbie's name on my arm. When I finished my swim, I looked up to the sky and said, "This is for you Robbie." I want to thank my husband Jim for his endless support, my daughter Sarah for helping me train for this adventure, my son Tom who was a tremendous help on my crossing. And last, to all my friends, family, Barron Center Crew, and followers of my blog, thank you. It meant so much to me to receive such an outpouring of suppport.
