Just two months ago we decided that we wanted to set a challenge for 2016, and with this in mind we came to the agreement that doing a marathon (26.2 miles or 42.2km) on the rowing machine at the gym would be a good idea, whilst also raising money for a good charity.
Our background is that we don't row... and we attempted our first 1km for this event about 2 months ago. Over the last 2 months there has been sweat and tears as our training has intensified as well as aching legs and sore bums etc.
Soooooo... on 9 September 2016 at midday we will be attempting the marathon row at PureGym Aldgate and we would be delighted if you could sponsor money to our chosen charity "Dandelion Time". Also if you are in the area we would be delighted if you could come and cheer us on - non members are welcome too.
Dandelion Time are a great charity who restore hope to young lives who have suffered trauma, abuse and neglect. We know that they would be delighted to receive any support possible.
In terms of times, we are both aiming to complete this goal in less than 3 and a half gruelling hours.
Thank you very much for visiting our site and we hope to see you on the day.
