Story

Hi all,

A few months ago, and admittedly in a slightly inebriated condition my male bravado surfaced amongst friends and somehow I roped myself into entering my first triathlon race. I have entered the Stratford 220 Triathlon which takes place on the 9th May 2010, so that's the easy bit done!! 

I am now in full training, which is proving a challenge in itself, trying to make the time to train 6 times a week as well as my body adjusting to the physical pain and learning to swim properly all over again is proving a stiff test, especially when I'm not exactly what you would call in peak physical fitness. However I am up for the challenge and thought it would be good to raise money at the same time for Cancer Research UK, which is undoubtedly a worthwhile cause I'm sure you'll agree. So please support me in supporting this charity.

I will be updating this page with photos throughout my training as well as photos of the event itself, so please feel free to check back.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.
