Between September 2012 and September 2013 I embarked on a year of fundraising for HOPE against Cancer after I was made an ambassador for them. AYEARFORHOPE was a huge success and raised nearly £8,500 - http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ayearforhope .
I have decided that I want to challenge myself even further and that is why I have set myself the challenge of going from complete triathlon novice to Ironman in less than 2 years.
2014 will be my year of training - this will include the Ashby20, the London Marathon, a number of sprint triathlons, the Leicester marathon and a 24h ultra marathon. These events will build my fitness and strength needed to complete the full IRONMAN distance set for 2015 at Weymouth.
Updates on my progress and day to day training can be found on my twitter account (@AYEARFORHOPE) and I also appreciate new followers.
