Humans of Swimrise: Why do you swim?
Jonathan Smith: I swim because it’s the one thing that never fails or disappoints, I know it quelled my mind and in turn I believe that saved my life.
Humans of Swimrise:
What is your favourite part of the swim?
Jonathan: The initial plunge, coming up from that moment and seeing all the happy heads around you and the exhilarating feeling thereafter.
Humans of Swimrise: How do you feel after your swim?
Jonathan: For sure in a much better place, less quick to anger and more connected and able to live in this world. I also feel great support for the swimming community, you just know they are with you.
