Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I started doing triathlons 4 years ago as I wanted to raise money for PSC, a chronic liver condition our neighbour's son suffers with.  I have amazed my family by continuing to train and this year have decided to 'up the ante' to support another cause close to my heart - Parkinsons.

My beloved dad and an uncle have this debiliating condition and I know of several others who also suffer.  In order to really earn your donation, I am this year moving up to the Standard distance triathlon for 2 out of the 3 tris, (the York tri doesn't do the longer distance).  So basically I'll be doing the Olympic distance of 1500m swim, 40km bike and a 10km run (depending on the course).  Suffice to say this is going to be a huge test of my fitness, mentally and physically.  I have been training for 9 months and just to add a bit of extra pressure, fell off my bike recently putting me out of action for over a week.  I am yet to test out my injured arm swimming but with only 2 weeks until my first tri of the trio, I have made the challenge  even harder!  Not the best preparation in the countdown to the big event.  

I am already feeling incredibly anxious about going the distance but knowing I am punishing myself for a such a worthy cause will get me over the line, even if I'm crawling by the end!  I would be extremely honoured if you would consider sponsoring me for my trio of tris.  It would mean so much to me and Parkinsons UK.  Thank you.
