Elaine Howley To Star In END-WET

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California.

Elaine Howley is following in the wake of Darren Miller (2012), Jen Schumacher (2013), Annaleise Carr (2014), Sarah Thomas (2015), and Jeff Utsch (2016).

Each of the swimmers have served as the honored guest swimmer for END-WET, a 36-mile (57.9 km) river swim in the Mighty Red River of the North from North Dakota to Minnesota.

Her list of marathon swimming accomplishments is as varied as they are long. Her passion and commitment to the sport is evident from her daily activities that range about researching historical events in the sport and writing educational articles to completing unprecedented swims and ice swims.

Howley will give a motivational speech to swimmers, volunteers and spectators before the race in North Dakota.

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
