Swimming the Thames

Laura and I are swimming the length of the River Thames.

We’re doing it in stages. Every time we have a free day on the weekend, we drive out west, hop into the river, swim for a couple of miles then walk back to our car.

It is the second event in our Greater London Triathlon having run the length of the all the London Underground Tube lines in 2010.
