Mallory Mead and Clara Bennett have been friends for years. They first met when they swam together on the Racer X swim team and later on Penn Aquatic Club. Now, Mallory is a recent graduate from Western Kentucky University and Clara will be a junior at MIT. Together they will be taking on one of the most coveted swimming achievements: Crossing the 21 miles of choppy waters that make up the English Channel. The purpose of this blog is to promote their efforts and update the public on their progress.
