Story

After a bit of a whirlwind couple of months, the details of which I can't fully go into yet, I've decided to set myself a challenge of completing a Triathalon  in August this year! 

Tri Liverpool is a truly spectacular triathlon event taking place on the 14th August 2016 in the Albert Docks area of Liverpool City Centre.

Up to 2,000 participants of all ages and abilities will swim, bike and run our way to the iconic finish line located outside the Echo Arena!

I've decided to take part in order to raise money (and awareness!) of Cystic Fibrosis!

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-limiting inherited condition caused by a faulty gene that controls the movement of salt and water in and out of cells. This causes mucus to gather in the lungs and digestive system and creates a range of challenging symptoms. More than 2.5 million people in the UK carry the faulty gene, around one in 25 of us – most without knowing.There is currently no cure for cystic fibrosis but many treatments are available to manage it, including physiotherapy, exercise, medication and nutrition.Each week five babies are born with cystic fibrosis, and two people die.More than half of the cystic fibrosis population in the UK will live past 41, and improved care and treatments mean that a baby born today is expected to live even longer!
