Swim Dates Quickly Approaching

The beginning of our swim window, which runs from August 24th to September 6th, is quickly approaching. Youssef leaves for Morocco in just three days. Jon and Phillipp each fly into Spain – Jon on the 20th and Philipp on the 21st. Philipp recently competed in a 24 hour swim competition, completing an amazing 38.5 kilometers (23.9 miles)!! He has been very sore and swimming considerably more modest distances since. Jon has reached the peak of his training and is slowly tapering. We have been getting behind the scenes coaching from our good friend Mark Lough, who gives us good tips on training and other aspects of preparation.

The year of hard work is mostly behind us and with so little time remaining we are nervous and excited about the adventure that lies ahead!
