Here are a couple links of interest. One is a you tube video of Leahi regarding her upcoming swim.

The other is for a satellite tracker we will be using during her swim. Anyone can click the link and see updated on her progress across the channel. I believe it will update every 10 minutes.

This is a great article about swimming in the Adver tiser. Skippa Diaz. "It's a lifelong activity, and it relaxes the body and mind," Diaz said. Diaz also said the training and values he learned as a youth swimmer helped him greatly in football. "It gives you big-time strength," Diaz said. "It's very demanding, with practices in the morning and afternoon - a double-whammy. But it gave me that work ethic, the belief that if you want to be good in anything, you gotta put in the time."
 The Story of the butterfly
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.
One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole.
Then it stopped, as if it couldn't go further.....
