I finally got the opportunity to break my personal best of 41′ on one breath. Today, I made it to 52′.
Some things I learned along the way: The ocean is like life, timing is everything – and sometimes timing just sucks and you lose a mask, so deal with it.
The best way to deal with an obstacle, like a giant 6′ wall of water, is to face it head on; ducking and holding on for dear life is acceptable.
Even if things don’t start off quite the way you hoped for, with persistence, you can still reach your goals – just don’t take your eyes off the anchor line or you’ll drift too far away.
52′ is great and I’m definitely ready for 60’+ but I know and respect my limits…Respect your limits – you still have to make it back to tell the story.
And finally, there’s no place like home – the big blue – even in its murkiness.
