Well Done Becky!!!! (Daughter)

Hi everyone,
 
Just a quick post to congratulate my Daughter, Becky and
her friend Jo, for both of them,
completing 200 lengths of our local swimming pool.
 
They are raising money for Marie Curie Nurses.
 
Becky had to stop a couple of times, as she got cramp badly
in her leg, after 106 lengths.
 
We are so proud of her, to find the strength to get back in the pool and
complete her task. Still with one leg cramping on her.
...................................................................... 
She was resting on this length, doing breast stroke
instead of front crawl.
She has a black swimming hat with white writing on 
and her face is in the water in this photo.
 
It was length 168 of the 200!
 
 
I think you can tell from her style of swimming, that she has,
in her teenage years,
represented a swimming club in competitions. 
She is a very good swimmer but not quite as fit, as she was at 17!!
 
.......................................................
 
Last length!!!! Yipeee!!
 
 
Swimming this distance at 41 and with quite a few years
since attempting this distance, was a lot to take on.
.............................................
 
THE END!!!!
 
Mia, her Daughter, is rather excited at Mummy finishes!!
 
Completed in 2 hours and 57 minutes. (even with 2 stops)
 
Well Done Becky!!
 
 
She had a target of raising £200 for the charity.
 
She actually raised £610!!
Fantastic!!
 
So a big thank you, to all friends and family for their kind sponsoring.
