Hello all,

I wanted to post about a lovely chap I know who is doing the Iron Man Challenge in Wales this September. For anyone who doesn't know the details, the Challenge involves a two and a half mile swim through open water, followed by a cycle ride of a mere 112 miles (yes, you read that right) and then they finish off by running the equivalent of the London Marathon (26 miles). I nearly fell off my chair when he told me he was doing all that.

We know him through our local disabled sailing group, he looks after a lovely man with a brain injury and is always raising money for charity and generally helping people out. He's doing it all to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, so if anyone can spare a fiver to put towards his target of £1,000 I know he would really appreciate it. Links below to his Just Giving page and more details of the challenge itself (just in case anyone else fancies having a go ;) ):
