(double click on the movie frame to start)

I was just writing to a friend tonight about how to stick with blogging, when I realized I hadn't put an entry in here in about a week. To tell the truth though, I have been blogging, just not here. I've been helping a guy (Chris Palfrey) out with a channel swim. He swam from Molokai to Oahu (the island I live on). The name of the channel spanning the 26.5 mile wide distance is, the Ka`iwi. We did great, Chris did it in under 13 hours, breaking the old record.

Jeff Kozlovich, an Ala Moana beach lifeguard, and HUGE outdoor Hawaii sportsman, asked me to guest write on my experiences with Chris last weekend. Those entries are on his blog. It's been a pretty busy week for the kozhawaii blog as Chris Palfery wasn't the only Palfery swimming this week. His wife Penny, decided to try and take on the only Hawaiian channel still left unswum, The Kaieiewaho, the 76 mile wide channel spanning from Oahu to Kauai. Jeff was a paddleboard escort on Penny's crew. Penny and Chris both started their channels at approximately the same time.

Ain't I a stinker? I'm not going to tell you how things ended up for Penny? Did she make it? You'll have to read for yourself. No spoilers here ;)
