STAR LETTER What a difference a day makes!


Dianne finishing the Dee Mile

It was my seventh consecutive year swimming at the Dee Mile, one of the oldest open water swim events in the UK, now in its 97th year.

I wasn’t sure whether to participate this year because I have been out of training since early May after a close family bereavement. However, I was so pleased I made the effort. At first I felt like “a lump of lead” in the water and didn’t feel I was making much progress, in the windy choppy weather conditions but once into the rhythm of my stroke it was fabulous, I felt totally exhilarated – I was ‘at one’ with the water again!
