Today is 5k Swimathon day, and entering this challenge seemed a good idea after I finished swimming 3k in the swimathon last year. Now however, it’s fair to say I’m questioning my sanity. Why do I do these things to myself? Well, mostly because I’m fundraising for Marie Curie, the charity that provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. I am a really S L O W swimmer, and worried that that I’ll have to share a lane with fast swimmers who will be very cross about having to pass me all the time. Practice sessions tell me that the first hour will be sketchy…and that after that I’ll begin to relax (until I reach the ‘kill me now’ zone). My fundraising page is here, and anything you can spare will be much appreciated by those in need: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/swimathon-2017-DeeK
UPDATE: 5K done, here’s the medal to prove it. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to eat all of the food.
