Story

Many of you will know that I’ve always enjoyed a lunchtime run and have gradually progressed through the ranks of triathlon, increasing the distances covered, developing an unhealthy obsession with heart rates, carb gels & protein shakes and, most importantly, raising money for cancer charities along the way.

The 6th of July will see me “suit up” to join 2,800 competitors in swimming 3.8km, biking 180km all topped off with a marathon - Ironman Frankfurt here I come….! With a target time of around 11 hours, I won’t win any medals - simply crossing the finish line will be reward enough. It’s been a tough winter with long nights in the garage on the turbo trainer and 5am starts with the swim club but the plan backed up by Sleight determination has paid off and I’m a lot fitter now than last summer, albeit continually tired and eating anything that passes me by! 

I will be completing this challenge in memory of my mum who passed away last year and raising funds for Thames Hospice who took care of her. If you want to help me in supporting them in the amazing work they do, then please donate via justgiving.
