Samichlaus Schwimmen

swimming and still smiling

So, I swam the river in Zurich today. 111 metres in the cold (4 degrees) but as ever it was a lot of fun. I had a bit of a support group, A., plus my friend Karen and family (husband and 2 girls) and when I got out, I was fed chocolates and mulled wine. What more could a girl want? Let me just say that the water was very, very cold. Heart stopping cold. So cold, that your lungs close up and you forget how to breathe. But hey, it was fun and I did it. Hurrah for mad swimming swiss people (and the odd mad british stiff upper lip person – ie me!) More photos here
