My story

[lt]h3[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][[/span]Update: [span=font-weight: normal;]Completed! On Saturday 5th in 14°C water, I finished the 10km swim from Totnes to Dittisham. It took me 2hrs 53 mins and was a combination of gruelling and exhilarating! Highlights include the sun breaking through, the water turning from brackish to "isotonic drink" to fairly salty, the first feeding station in a wooded bend in the river and the camaraderie with the other swimmers. Thank you very much for all of your support, it was a massive encouragement and I'm glad it's done! Thank you!] [/span][lt]/h3[gt][p][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p][p][span=font-size: 14.6667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: transparent;]Hi, [lt]br /[gt][/span] [/p][span=line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;" dir="ltr][lt]p style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;" dir="ltr"[gt][/p][lt]p style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;" dir="ltr"[gt][lt]span style="font-size: 14.6667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: transparent;"[gt]You may not have known I am doing this, but after some patchy training, the time has come for me to swim 10 kilometers in a Devon river.
