Why do I do these things to myself?

Published on Sunday 9th April 2017 by DJ Kirkby

Today is 5k Swimathon day, it seemed a good idea after I finished swimming 3k in the swimathon last year. Now however, it’s fair to say I’m bricking it. Why do I do these things to myself? 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 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). Please pop over to my fundraising page to throw me a smile. 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.
