Marathon swim

IMG_2143

Went to support our friends running in the Sydney marathon today. Β Even at 8.30am it was hot, hot, hot so instead of jogging encouragingly next to them I went for a long swim instead. Much more sensible…

      Not a skerrit of food in sight – most disappointing – just lots of discarded food gel thingys that tasted disgusting:)

      summer is here now – apparently will be the warmest on record. the new government has got rid of the climate change commission so we’ll never know how bad it’s going to get…

    Swimming is still great exercise! Plus, it’s easier on the joints and in my opinion way more fun!

      They love it don’t they? – doesn’t seem to matter either how cold or dirty the water is:)

    Participation in a sport much better than spectating any day and swimming is the BEST πŸ˜‰ It gives you a good appetite too πŸ˜‰

      Too right – I love swimming in the lakes, the seas, the river – anywhere. Sadly we don’t have a pool but next week we’re on holiday at the beach and it will be fabbo:)
