Adam Coughlin said he didn’t start to competitively swim until graduate school. On Monday he’ll swim five miles, across the Straits of Mackinac.

He said there is one thing he looks forward to most.

“Finishing! Just seeing this coming into fruition and seeing a goal I set for myself for months ago finally come true.”

The swim is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity of Michigan.

Coughlin said he will also be running a personal record later this month. He’ll participate in a competitive 64-mile fun-run in Livingston county.
