The annual swimathon is over and thank you to all of you who sent well wishes. My target was to beat two hours for the 5 kilometre swim and I completed it in 1 hr 55 mins 46 seconds. Needless to say I was delighted if not shattered. My eldest daughter Alexandra also swam and she did half the distance this year but then she is swimming for two, expecting her first child later this year, so amazing she entered the event at all. Despite my concerns it was superbly well run by the manager and lifeguards at Aspire Felpham, so many thanks to them as well.
Later in the evening we searched through the previous medals we had won and I realised my first swimathon was 24 years ago, and I wasn't much faster then!
If you want to get fit, lose some weight and have great fun I recommend this event. Book now for next year and give yourself one huge incentive to achieve something memorable.
