Well dear readers, this very morning I completed 1 million metres, or 1000 kilometres if big numbers scare you. I will give you the full details at the end of the year as I am not finished yet. I will say at this point that it took me 202 swims, an average of just under 5000 metres per swim.
I am off to the US of A now so I will put in some big efforts before the Hogmanay.
Happy Christmas to all my loyal followers around the world. Our annual get together will be held in the usual phone box on New Year's day.
Look at my last entry and link onto my Open Water Swimming Magazine article.
Why didn't the BBC broardcast of Led Zepplin's one off concert have Stairway to Heaven? Disgrace. I want my money back.

Red Cross Sponsorship

I am delighted to announce that I will be swimming in 2013 to raise funds for the Red Cross in Northamptonshire. This money will go towards a new vehicle to accommodate people that have suffered fires at their home. More details to follow.

I am getting closer to my million metres for the year. I am currently on 970,000 so I should get there in the next 2 weeks, probably passing the total in the USA when we visit Kate, Doug and Tabitha for Christmas. Can't wait!

For those of you who haven't yet seen my H2O Open Water magazine article, check it out.
