I love the open water swimming and really enjoy the feeling of getting in the water and just swimming. However, I’m trying to enter a couple more events tonight and I need crews for them both and I just feel really uncomfortable asking for favours from my friends for this.
Both of the events are in the Lake District and start early on Saturday, so anyone volunteering to crew has to stay over on the Friday night – so that’s an expense for them, as well as meaning they have to leave work early on Friday to get there, or drive all Friday evening.
I’m happy to do these things, but I’m doing them. I don’t see why I need to ask other people and I don’t like doing it. It doesn’t feel fair and I feel uncomfortable doing it. So I’m having a moan.
