What is this all about?

I'm planning to swim the English Channel in the summer of 2009. Why? I'm insane I guess...or I just like a challenge. It's always been on my list of things that I want to do, and I figure now is as good a time as any to start training for it!

I'm currently in the planning stages, I've been reading lots of websites about what's involved and now I'm starting to get in touch with people who may be able to help me with training and advice. I'm starting to put lengths in in the pool, but I also need to start getting into the sea (brrrr!) once I find people to swim with.

Anyway, I figure that this will be an easy way of keeping people updated on what I'm doing and how it's all going...

Hi Lisa, am currently looking into the Channel swim as well, however, because of the cost (around £2k) I have sort of changed my challenge to the Channel Swim distance in a pool.
For me this is seen as a Challenge as well, since you need to be nuts to even think of doing something like this.
If there are more people interested I would love to be included, and share the pain.
