As a few of you know I’ve been wanting to do a triathlon for a while now… the time has come around quite quickly and on Saturday 21st July I will be tackling the elements, completing in my first ever super sprint triathlon at the beautiful Castle Howard.
Yes Nan, I am swimming 400m in the lake. Then I will be biking 23km, special thanks to my new coach Peter Sellars. Finishing of with a 4km run and the hunt for a new pair of legs. As always, I will be dividing my sponsors between my Wannabe Vet fund and the wonderful Macmillan charity. Macmillan support and help people affected by cancer feel more in control of their lives; from the diagnosis throughout their whole battle against cancer. Their campaigns include Brave the Shave, Sober for October and coffee mornings but I wanted to challenge myself in the best way I know how, physically. Although I could easily inhale a coffee morning cake stand…
I can’t believe I am actually competing in a triathlon, the same one I was inspired by a few years ago. So why not come and watch? See what all the lumberjack suit, lycra, sweaty socks (and probably the odd asthma attack) malarkey is all about (Sunday 21st for the standard distance/ elite athletes).
Please follow the links to my fundraising page or to donate without me losing 5% on commission see my PayPal link. If you can’t sponsor me please share this blog with your family and friends. Now where to start; swim, bike or run?
Big loves, Evie xx
