A hint of nervousness, a splash of self-doubt, a fear of changing weather conditions, a bit of insomnia, and second thoughts on the amount of training performed are always possible in the week leading up to a major athletic endeavor.
This is especially true for an attempt that has never been done before.
But Phil White and the volunteers of the In Search of Memphre always dream up increasingly difficult challenges for athletes – and it seems there are always takers. First Sarah Thomas completed a two-way swimming crossing of Lake Memphremagog. This week, White is arranging for a two-way Biathlon Marathon in Lake Memphremagog at the
25-mile (40.2 km) In Search of Memphre.
The detective from Colorado Springs who specializes in Special Victims, high up in the Rocky Mountains, is a bit nervous as can be expected, but it tuning up and resting during her final week of taper for her attempt on September 6th.
