I finally did a 10K! W00t!

Swam the Dart 10K this weekend in the UK. It started at Totnes and ended at Dittisham in the Dart river. Incredible and great fun. Helped that the tide cut about 40 minutes off my expected finish!

Well done! I swam my 1st 10k a few weeks ago (CAST Classic in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, USA). 10k is a long way...

Careful, Mike.

Next thing you know, you'll be eyeing a channel somewhere. It's a slippery path, my friend.

The problem with swimming a 10K is the same problem that you have once you turn to OWS and swim without walls. Once you do it you realize there are no limits to how far you can swim.

I just found the website:

It looks like a lovely swim! Beautiful scenery. It's a part of England I haven't seen. This swim is definitely on my list now
