I started swimmer as a necessary component of triathlon. I hated it at first, but once I got into open water I fell in love with it and swimming in the San Francisco Bay. I did my first Alcatraz crossing in 2004. The next year I did 2 crossings, then 4 in 2006. In 2007 I decided to keep doubling every year and did 8. I pulled of 16 in 2008 and then broke the pattern in 2009. 2010 I picked it up again and did 32. That was the end of that. I though I could pull off 64 in a year, but really if it becomes an obsession on counting it loses its joy … at least for me. In 2011 I relaxed the count a bit and slowly made my way to 100, which a few mighty adventures along the way. I decided to stop counting at 100. Am I still out there swimming in the bay? Perhaps ;-)
