Not my usual kind of post I know but I’m doing the London Triathlon (1.5km swim, 40km bike ride & 10km run) to raise money to support the fantastic work being done day in and day out by Macmillan Cancer Support and I’d like you to sponsor me.
A bit about what Macmillan do:
One in three of us will get cancer and it’s the toughest thing most of us will ever face. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or a loved one has, you’ll want a team of people in your corner supporting you every step of the way.
Macmillan provide practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care.
I have lost several member of my direct and extended family to cancer so decided to do something that was completely out of my comfort zone in the hope of raising as much money as possible and a triathlon definitely is well out of my comfort zone.
I’m 197 days away from the big event and have just started ‘triathlon’ training for it which should be ample time to get to get to where I need to be. I’m planning on updating this site with progress on my training because I suspect it’ll be an interesting journey.
