Our names are Emma and Mackenzie, and we are sophomores on the Smith College Swimming and Diving Team. We have begun this blog to share with our friends the progress we are making towards swimming the English Channel in August 2011! We began planning this adventure about a year ago, in February of 2010. After we heard stories about former Smith swimmers who had successfully completed crossings, we decided that we would also give it a try. Our swim coach, Kim Bierwert, will be writing workouts and accompanying us on our attempt. We look forward to this incredible opportunity and appreciate all the support we have received.
Look back from time to time to see updates, pictures, and important information about our swim.
