Capri approaching the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Haven't got time for a full write-up right now but I couldn't resist a sneak peek at my photos from yesterday's Ederle swim, and I thought I'd just share this one for now.
BTW, I was plenty impressed by Capri's swim yesterday even though she didn't make it all the way, but this morning, she posted something on Facebook that I found simply mindblowing.
Here was what I posted in response:
Tough swim yesterday. Capri was going strong & steady but we lost the flood somewhere around 3 (earlier than predicted, and I was hoping the S wind would hold the flood a little longer, but I think all that rain we've been having worked against us) and her swim ended in Bay Ridge. Still, she swam 12+ miles, swam for 7+ hours - and then what do you think she did today?
Got up at 6 AM and WENT FOR A SWIM! Capri, you're amazing.
Can you even imagine??? Now there's a woman who clearly swims for the sheer love of swimming. Awesome.
