I was a little alarmed to read today that ‘more people have climbed Everest than have ever made this swim‘!
I don’t know whether it is luck, coincidence or fate, but MyTriEvents have organised a swim of Lake Windermere for the 7th of September this year and they have kindly agreed to give us free entries in support of our fundraising efforts. Thank you Tasha for making this happen!
Our parents are very relieved, to put it mildly and we are thrilled! Although we will now have no excuses for not finishing all in one go. Hopefully swimming as part of an organised event should mean we will be a little safer navigating the surprisingly busy waters and feel more entitled to be in the water.
I am also secretly pretty happy that Alice will have a fair few other people to latch on to if she suddenly imagines that there is a giant sea monster beneath her!
I think we had better start looking for some warm wetsuits!!! Any recommendations welcome!
