Writer's Block: My Biggest Dream

What is your biggest dream? How do you plan to achieve it?
My biggest dream is swimming the K2 of swims, the Irish Channel. It is cold and worse it has jellyfish that I'm allergic to. Nine people have finished it solo, many more have tried. It is one of the Ugliest swims on the planet but it calls to me like a siren would call to sailors in the myths of old.
Training, toughness, orneriness, and the stubborn will to finish will help with lots of training both mental as well as physical is the only way to achieve this goal.... That and having my 'Sis' Ali swimming in front of me 'in my head of course'....
