In a recent moment of madness I decided to take on the Aspire Channel Swim 2016, swimming the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire, a charity who provide incredible support to spinal cord injured people to enable them to live their lives independently.
This challenge resonated with me because my Dad had a spinal operation in April 2016 and had it not been so super successful (thank goodness it was) we would have been grateful for the support of the Aspire charity.
22 miles! I'm not a particularly strong or confident swimmer so this is a huge challenge for me and I will need LOTS of encouragement, but the more I raise the better.
Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming .....
