About Me

274057285_3a3aa76a28.jpgFor my 40th year I decided to take another angle.  To many people get hung up on the life's little issues; work, age, permisson, etc, etc, and forget there's a world outside their picket fence.  So for my mid-life crisis therapy i'm  spending more time living, and less time sitting on the couch...my antidote to the corportate lifestyle; no sabattical included.

365 days...

    Well this was probably one of the most painful things i have done, but the weather was great, the water was clear, the team work was first class so all good!  A quick synopsis of the day:

    Miles 1-4:  Feeling great, waves not too bad and no sharks:  Miles 5-8:  Current is definately stonger but still feeling good.  I can start to see the Atlas Mountain range through the mist....and no sharks:  Miles 9-11: Every 1-2 strokes i find myself in a trough so i end up holding my breath for another stroke:  Mile 12 to finish:  I remember barfing up orange energy drink...which isn't easy when when in the water...but after that i felt good as new and finally hit the coast of Africa.

    CONGRATULATIONS! Heard all about it from Yusuf this weekend. Quite a feat! Makes me wish I had planned something like this for my 40th, but I have an allergy to sharks.

    The blog is cool. One suggestion: add an RSS feed!
