CitroJim's Swimathon 2016...

Post by CitroJim »

Many of you will recall that I entered Swimathon 2015 and swam 2.5K for charity..

I'm doing it again this year :D

Here's my giving page:

Swimathon 2016 Giving Page

All donations gratefully received ;)

I'm looking to beat the £600 I raised last year...

Thanks all!

Consider yourself sponsored Jim. I shall make it official after Christmas.
Is it 2.5km or 2500miles? Never can tell with you.

Well, let's see. I've swum 265Km to date this year so to swim 2500 miles would take me about three years...

I'd be a bit wrinkly after being in the pool that long :lol:

Generally I swim a K a day...

I've just completed Swimathon 2016 in a time of 1 hour 24 minutes to swim 2.5Km... I ended up swimming 2.7KM which is 82 lengths of our pool...

Very pleased with my time this year, much better than last :D

You can still sponsor me ;)
