Steve Tassell, along with friends Andy Jackson and Imogen Scott have entered all FOUR Henley Swim events this summer.
Like a lot of adults I hadn’t swum competitively since I left school. I picked it up again a few years ago when I gave triathlon a go. I still remember my first few sessions in the pool, it felt like the most unnatural thing in the world and I’m convinced at times I looked like I was drowning! But once things had calmed down I started to discover a real joy again.
Andy also came back in to swimming via triathlon and Imogen first swum in the Classic a few years ago. For the last few years we’ve entered the Henley Classic but this year we wanted an extra challenge! Having read a few reviews from others that had taken part in the Bridge-to-Bridge (Thames Marathon), this quickly ended up on the ‘bucket list’. The Mile is always a fun day out and we’re looking forward to the Club to Pub for those unique medals and the BBQ afterward! June can’t come round soon enough.
