Following on from last weeks blog have a look below to see how Scott and Karen got on at the weekend.
Scott successfully completed his swim in 11 hours and 11 minutes, please see below for Scot's post after his swim:
I wanted to whole heartedly thank everyone who was involved in my Loch Lomond swim yesterday.
I have been truly humbled by the amount of support and good wishes from so many people. To come out of the water with so many family and friends waiting for you is something that I will treasure for a long time, you have no idea how that felt after such a long time with your own thoughts...
At the time of writing this, the total donations (with Gift Aid) has risen to an amazing £4850 - thank you so much to everyone who donated.
If anyone has shared my posts up to the event, can you please pass on my thanks to anyone who donated.
Special thanks to: Robert Hamilton from Vigour Events for all his coaching and support (though I was questioning your character on the final stages of the swim!), and to Stewart Griffiths for making sure that the route south was as straight as we could get. Katie Grier and Shona Richardson from the Brain Tumour Charity for their support in the run up to the swim and turning up on the day to cheer me in.
Chiara, for providing accommodation and food the night before the swim #itsstillyourfault
As with all the things that I've undertaken, I could not have done this without my wonderful wife Sharon, having her stand on the shores of Loch Lubnaig at 6am especially when she's loves her bed so much, Ryan for throwing back at me all the same comments that I've used on him over the years, and finally to Ross for being my inspiration to keep going when things got tough towards the end...
You might remember Karen from our Blog two weeks ago, Karen was taking part in her 1st ever Triathlon Sprint in memory of my brother Michael Stewart who sadly lost his short battle with cancer 2 years ago. Karen successfully completed her first Sprint Triathlon in 2 hours and 4 mins and has raised over £350 for Cancer Research.
