Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. 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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

A little bit more about me.

I gave up smoking on the 26th January 2012 and had a brainwave that I should compete in an event to keep my motivation up and also to be honest I could do with becoming fitter. So I decided to do a triathlon. Given my swimming background I thought the Olympic distance would be enough of a challenge. Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew.

I'm writing a blog detailing my progress. Please visit it. www.smoker2triathlete.blogspot.com and follow me on Twitter @smoker23athlete

Update - My first attempt to give up failed but I'm now on day 29 without nicotine and know I will never smoke again. New quit date 29th March 2012
