My story

[p]I DID IT!!I am jumping into the Serpentine lake in Hyde park and swam 2 miles. Its my longest swim ever by a long long way (previously I only swam 750m in the sprint London Triathlon). I trained (fairly hard) thanks to coaches Dan Bullock from SFT, Steve Trew (Annual Personal Best Traithlon Camp) and Dawn Hunter ( & Trisha) from ELT. Also to my partner Ralph without whom I would not even have contemplated such a challenge. [/p][p]Please sponsor my efforts - if you can; as always I think its a great opportunity to raise awareness of the many families touched, wounded and struggling with life threatening illnesses or silently and lovingly caring for loved ones with long term illnesses. I also give thanks for my own health and strength to take part in these great challenges. Thanks to everyone who kept me in your thoughts on that 15.00 wave sat.....[/p][p]Oh and I must mention it - The London Classics medal is super! Its a giant - awarded for completing all three classic events namely : The London Marathon, Prudential ride 100 and the 2m Swim serpentine. [/p][p]Thanks for the support [/p][p]Karen[/p][p]xx[/p][p][br][/p]
