This is a major challenge for me which will take a lot of my time, plenty of hard work and the need to push myself to overcome a few fears.
I have never been very comfortable in open water and def would not go out of my depth, two things that cant be avoided on the 1st September.
At the minute I am not close to being able to swim 500m, so swimming lessons are underway, and a routine sorted to get as much time in the water as possible. 1st lesson I couldn't manage 25m without stopping so a lot of hard work is required.
Autism NI is a charity that is close to my heart, a team of special people doing amazing work.
My son Dylan has Asperger’s and I see the challenges he faces every day, being misunderstood by so many people.
