This was my 24th swimathon and the 7th since I quit alcohol. There is no way I would still be able to cope with that distance had I still been drinking, even if I was still alive. When I started all those years ago I certainly never expected to still be doing the event into my sixties. Onwards until next year although I might do the open water swimathon in September if the green algae stays away this year.
PS, I wasn't happy having to wear that pink hat!
