Honestly, I would've been doing this triathlon regardless, and I know I pestered you all for sponsorship when I did the London Marathon last year. However, as I've got a charity place for this, it's a great opportunity for any of you who feel that they want to donate money.
So for those of you who aren’t into inflicting pain upon themselves in the form of endurance events, the Outlaw Half is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 miles on the bike, and a 13.1 mile run.
The majority of people will be affected by cancer at some point in their life, whether the experience ends with a positive outcome, or a devastating one. Personally, I can barely remember a time when cancer wasn't in my life, with my dad having had the disease for the past 19 years, to more recently when I lost a friend after her short battle.
Treatments for cancer are being developed all the time, with screenings put in place and awareness of symptoms being raised to help save lives.
If you feel that you want to donate to Cancer Research, then please do :)
.. also, I'm painfully aware of how stupid signing up for this was when my only triathlon experiences have been super sprints.. so, bring on the pain :D
