Patron Saint of Swimmers


Saint Adjutor
 Saint Adjutor is known as the patron saint of swimmers.  My childhood friend Vicki Mullen surprised me with this gift.  I am deeply touched by her thoughtfulness.  It is ironic that Saint Adjutor was born in France.....just the place I'll be swimming to in August.  I plan to sew this medal to the inside of my swimsuit.  I continue to train six days a week.  And during my solo crossing of the English Channel, I will say a prayer to Saint Adjutor for a successful crossing.  Thank you Vicki for being such a wonderful friend.
