Hey thanks for supporting me in this crazy venture!! 

As you may no if you follow me in anyway on Facebook I've been doing a bit more running and sharing posts about sporty things which started at the beginning of the year with a health kick up the bum for me and husband Greg who is facing major spinal surgery this year. Well a spanner was thrown in the works when we discovered Greg has kidney cancer – it's contained, he's going to loose a kidney but after recovery all will be well and he’ll be getting ready for the next big op (he’s getting the most out of the NHS this year). 

So, I've decided to up my game by completing a sporting event each month till the end of the year to raise funds for Kidney Cancer UK (and any charities that may be organising the events I do) to support their work in research and surgical procedures that are kind of relevant to us right now.

So I have booked:

22nd June – Mile Swim Cholmondley Lake - DONE!!

30th June Oswestry Colour Run – with Natalie! 3k

29th July Chester Deva Deva's Aquathlon – 750m swim 5k run

** Addition ** 4th August Girls on the Run 10K

10th August Dee Mile Swim – 1 mile/2k

8th September Shropshire Triathlon - 750m swim - 22k cycle - 5k run

** Addition** 21st September Shrewsbury Mud Run - 5K of mud and obstacles.... in mud!!

13th October Oswestry 10k

** Addition** 19th October Chirk Dark Run - 4k night run with the kids!!

9th November Mad Jacks Trail Run – 5 miles

December – plans to do a Santa Dash with the kids!

So by the end of the year I would have
cycled 13.67miles, swum 2.93 miles and run 30ish miles!! Plus all the training!!
