Entries for the world’s most important swim, the RNLI Myrtleville – Church Bay on June 10th, are coming in steadily, but it’s worrying how many people are putting off their qualifying 1,500m sea swim –
“until May”. It’s May now. Has been for ten days.
“until it’s warmer”. It’s Ireland. Don’t delay for what may never be. Anyway, the sea is up over 12c. Our swim often runs at 13c. Get used to it by swimming in it.
“until closer to the swim”. Under 30 days. Tick Tock.
“until my pool classes finish”. Pool? Wha’? Get outta there.
By way of encouragement for the masses, Mae Irwin joined us to do 2km in Myrtleville this week. At dawn. Twice – Monday and Wednesday, so far. Just to show it’s fine for anyone who was putting it off.
Mae is 10. Ten. Years. Old.
So, tell me again – what’s your excuse?
Get in. Get qualified. Get entered. Mae says it’s fine.
