I’m getting antsy about all this cold weather. Only a month to go and I can call it spring – although I wont be jumping straight back into Wellington harbour, twill still be way too cold for me.
By Labour weekend I’ll be back in, starting my training for the new Kiwi season of open water swims.
Hopefully I’ll get to hear about a couple more special people that will give the fortypointtwo lake Taupo challenge a go over the summer….. come on people. If I can do it so can you!
This year I’ve entered the full Series of 6 State Ocean Swims (November to April), and the Epic Swim January 11th-12th in Taupo.
I’ve decided to try and raise a few funds for Surf Life Saving New Zealand this year as per a suggestion from the good folk at the Ocean swim series. If I can raise $500 for SLSNZ, then Scott will refund my entry fee for the series – sounds like a good plan to me. The best part is that through the givealittle fundraising scheme, 100% of money donated will go straight to Surf Lifesaving NZ.
That makes me very happy as I’m a one-eyed Cantab that’s “in it for life” with Taylors Mistake Surf Club in beautiful Christchurch.
So if you’d like to help out some of those hardworking volunteers on our beaches, please check out my fundraising page:
