Dear reader, don't fret. I am still alive and kicking!

The end of summer means that I haven't had much to talk about regarding exciting swims!
A couple of weeks ago I swam in The Tour de Nene, a series of swims over one weekend at various points along the river. I did the Friday and Sunday legs, 17K in all. Great fun and fantastic company.

At the moment I'm enjoying retirement from teaching and starting to rev up my motivational speaking business. I had an enjoyable day speaking at The Kettering Buccleuch Academy talking to all the year groups from Year 11 to Year 7. I don't think anyone fell asleep.

The Nene is magic at the moment, calm, clear and cooling down. This morning my swim started in thick fog but cleared to a fantastic clear sky.

I have entered a 5 river swim in December so I will continue to swim again throughout the winter.

Shame about England vs Wales. Tee hee.

Setting off. 7am. Only 13 and a half hours to go!
