Daily News of Open Water Swimming.....Great Review of the Peaks to Portland

Before the Peaks to Portland Swim, Ellen Shockro of California introduced herself to me.  She's an amazing athlete and swim enthusiast.  Today, I received an email from her and she mentioned that she wrote an article about Saturday's 2.4 mile ocean swim for the internationally recognized website "The Daily News of Open Water Swimming" .  It's a fantastic article on the Peaks to Portland Swim.  Please visit their website  http://dailynewsofopenwaterswimming.com/ . I'm hoping that swimmers in the international community will want to plan a vacation in Maine next year and swim the Peaks to Portland.  It's a great swim promoted by the Cumberland County YMCA.  Also, it's a YMCA fundraiser that all proceeds go directly to their swim programs.  Thank you, Ellen, for writing such a great review of the Peaks to Portland 30th Anniversary Swim.  It is very much appreciated.
