I wrote this last year shortly before my first trip back to Maui.
I'd planned to swim the channel and it forced me to reflect on the swim and how I was hurt.
When I showed the draft to a friend, she asked me "What is your goal in writing and sharing this?".
I gave her an answer, but I am not sure why I feel the need to post this.
Maybe it's because it changed my life, my future and every relationship I will ever have.
Or maybe because it's because I still meet swimmers who think my injury was due to some freak accident.
Whatever the reason...here it is.
And this past weekend I swam the channel.
