My granddad was the closest thing I had to a father figure when I was growing up. He passed away at home in January 1994 via a sudden and unexpected heart attack after a short walk to the shops for a paper. I was 12 at the time. 20 years later I still haven't fully come to terms with his passing. My granddad was a Royal Northumberland Fusilier and World War II veteran whilst I was a nervous, introspective youth with serious self confidence issues brought on mainly by bullying. He would often tell me "you're not a fighter are you lad?" As a tribute to him and to pay my respects to his legacy I intend to complete UK IRONMAN - 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and 26.2 mile run in under 17 hours.
