Swim for your Heart...Feb 14

Good luck to all swimmers participating in the "Swim for your Heart..Feb 14" swim.  There has been a tremendous response from the international swim community. Together we can bring an awareness of heart disease prevention.   A special thanks to Mexican marathon swimmers Antonio Arguelles and Mariel Hawley for organizing 1400 swimmers to participate in Mexico.  And thank you to "Big Rick's Outdoor Swim Team" for helping to spread the word of this swim and for their participation in England.  Also, a special thank you to the other countries and to the USA swimmers.  And finally, this "Swim for your Heart..Feb 14" was prompted by the tragic death of Fran Crippen last October during a FINA Open Water 10 Km World Cup. It is a wonderful tribute to him.
