Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I managed to complete it, as predicted, the swim and cycle went well but the run was really tough, but elated when I completed it.  Thanks for all your support!

When I signed up for the half Ironman I did not realise just how difficult it would be for me - someone who has not done a triathlon before and someone who now realises that they are a terrible runner!!

The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation are a local charity that help all sorts of people, home and abroad.  Pete and Linda set up the foundation following the death of their son and ensure that 100% of the money raised goes to worthy recipients - no one takes any salary or expenses from the charity, everything is done voluntarily.  They recently helped my son with mobility equipment, so I am keen to help give something back so other people can benefit too.

Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
