Whilst having an early midlife crisis I have decided I want to complete an Ironman Triathlon before I turn 40. 2019 was meant to be the year!! But my health decided to mess me around leaving me unable to train (or do much else).
So I will be embarking on a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run in 2020 and hoping to become a 'Ironman'.
As part of a build up to that I will also be doing some 'training events'
1) Manchester Marathon on Sunday 7th April 2019
2) Leeds Half Marathon on Sunday 12th May 2019
3) Sundowner Half Ironman Triathlon on Saturday 31st August 2019
More will be added
I am running for a new fund which is being established which is dedicated to improving mental health through sport and physical activity. The fund will look to provide training to providers of sport and support delivery of activity aimed at those with mental health issues.
