Penny Palfrey Project Cuba2012 – New Blog

It was hoped that I’d have my new website up and running by now, but alas it’s nowhere to be seen. It’s been mentioned to me that “The Penny Palfrey Project & Cuba2012” should have its own independent blog and that I should continue to use palfreymarathonswims website for our general swimming and travel blogging. So here it is, a new blog that I’ve put together over the past few evenings just for “Cuba2012” complete with a new video of my training swim a few mornings ago when I was fortunate enough to enjoy watching  the “SUPER moon”  going down while the sun was coming up. Enjoy!

The monsoons arrive in Townsville making for some pretty challenging conditions for sea birds and swimmers alike. With ten weeks of 85-90 kilometres a week of open water swimming training under my belt, I’m preparing myself in readiness for my 103 mile Cuba-Florida challenge in June.
