WINTER Creeps in...


WINTER Creeps in...

Suzie Dods

Winter is creeping in and with it the urge to hibernate and eat. 

I could get away with the eating if I was swimming a bit. Yet, once again I find myself teaching and coaching more than swimming. I miss the feeling of being fit and of being pleasantly tired enough to go to bed at a decent hour and sleep well. I just have not found the drive to want to actually make time to swim. I'm only slightly worried about it. I figure it's just another stage and when something comes along that tickles my fancy enough I'll start to make time.

In the interim, I'm coaching at Richmond Plunge , I'm coaching at the Claremont ( dream come true!) and I am aiming to walk up Fillmore on a daily basis. THAT is a challenge!

The  24 Hour Relay is approaching and I need to start to get that sorted. We already have two trinkets! It's sold out again, which just blows my mind.

Sadly, we have no overseas participants this year, but I kind of understand that.

Here's to a fun, healthy and happy  2018.
