She DID IT!

On this day, 20 August, 2011, I (Jenny Birmelin) swam the English Channel (England to France) in 11:31.07. Swam to shore around 3:36 pm (England time). My swim was 24 nautical miles. Thank you to my fabulous crew (Noah, Lynn, Cheryl, Karen, and Captain Andy and co-captain Andy). We had take-away pizza and ice cream.  Bed time! Celebration dinner tomorrow. Today, I met Channel swimmers and hopefulls and signed the wall at the White Horse Pub in Dover, to make it official. Check out her blog and report at JennyBirmelin.com.
