Swimming Across Monterey Bay with Marathon Swimmer, Catherine Breed | She Plays

1

Enjoy our chat with Catherine Breed, marathon swimmer and social activist! We hear all about her experiences of swimming across Lake Tahoe and the North Channel (the sea between Ireland and Scotland!). We talk about an encounter with a great white shark and how she prepares mentally and physically for such epic swims (12 hours! 58 degree water! Jellyfish stings!). She is also passionate about giving back and encouraging people to “get in the water!” She recently swam the Monterey Bay in CA and raised $3,000 for Diversity in Aquatics, an organization that promotes water safety, education and drowning prevention for minority groups. Catherine is such an inspiration – enjoy the episode!
