    Last year I did my first Ironman (UK Ironman Bolton) I finished it and raised around £1400 for SCOPE.

    This year I am doing two trail marathons. Not bad times, trails were harder than expected, so took me a little longer than I planned!

    16th March (5hrs 24min)
    17th March (5hrs 38min)

    Just entered Manchester Marathon! This weekend!

    I have also booked places on the two full distance Ironman UK's. Bolton and Tenby, which are 5 weeks apart.

    Anything would be great.

    Thanks :)

    *Edit*

    Just thought I would add, 4 years ago, I was around 23 stone ;)

    Clicky!

    Great! thank you so much. It really is a good cause. One close to me also, as I teach swimming to kids (and some adults) with disabilities.

    I have taught kids with disabilities for a while now, got involved with the ex-services at an open water swim session. One of the coaches there got me involved.

    Why are you still at 30 quid on the giving site?

    surely more could give you some cash?

    Pretty much all of my fund raising is at work and family, which I send directly to them. I will update the offline donations today though!

    Thanks for your donation!
