There is a couple of things you need to know about me.
1. I have not raised a lot of money for charity before, but always seem to be donating to support others
2. I do not do blogs, Facebook or spend too long through multiple media on devices contacting people
Those of you who know me have heard me talk of doing some Triathlons this year.
So with my dad recently being diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukaemia and ultimately dying all within 6/7 weeks aged 76 I sat down and suddenly thought I should look to raise some money for Leukaemia Research by entering some Triathlons and a great big Sunday afternoon bike ride (aka Birmingham Bikeathon 100 miles)
Then by entering the bike ride, I suddenly found out that I will have to write a blog.
This is my first blog.
Those of you who do one and spend your life sharing moments with friends, family and occasionally strangers I applaud you because I find it all a bit daunting
Finally for my first blog, I want to mention the Bikeathon on 21 September and Warwickshire Triathlon on 28th September
In between these dates I celebrate my 50th birthday. Not sure how much celebrating I will be doing after riding for 100 miles. I suggest most of it will be done whilst finding it difficult to sit down!
And to set the scene, on my swim this morning I was so slow that most of the time I had to give way to others, including my 10 yr old son!
Its going to be a long year..............
