- I gave up smoking in April 2006 and started running in August 2006. I completed a race for life in 2007 and again in 2008. I completed my first 10km in September 2008, 10 mile in November 2008, 1/2 marathon in 2009,marathon 2010, ultra 2011 Olympic triathlon 2011 and Iron distance triathlon in 2012. 2013 I would like to run 2013 miles over the year I am raising funds IN MY DADS NAME for British Lung Foundation. I'll never be the fastest, but I'm determined and I love to race.

Well this is it, its nearly here my biggest chalkene so far. An Olympic dustance Triathlon. The Ripon Black Sheep Triathlon. 1500 m swim, 40km cycle and a 10km run. Its on Saturday starting at 2 pm. I will start at approx 2:25 pm http://www.nyptri.freeuk.com/ I, just spent my second night of helping set up the site. Its all very real now. Im nervous and excited. Pasta party tomorrow night. I am as ready as I can be I havent done enough brick sessions. But I hope I can get over that. My biggest issue is that when I swim I always need the loo as soon as I get out of the water and I'm not the fastest at getting out of a wet suit. Hopefully I can complete the whole thing in under 4 hours. Then I have a time to work on for next time. I am doing this to raise money for the British Lung Foundation in memory of my Dad who passed three years ago.
