On 11 June 2013, I woke up in a hotel in the US wondering what the logistical requirements would be for swimming the Channel. I had no idea of what it might cost, how long it might take, or how I would go about beginning to register my intent for this challenge.
If my swim goes ahead on Monday 18th August 2014, it will be 433 days after the inception of the original idea.
In many ways, that time has flown. But it has also been a long year of research, planning, fundraising and training.
Whatever happens, I will not be upset when it is all over next week!
