UPDATE! 25 Oct 2010

It is with great sadness that I write this update. On the 25th October 2010 my little sister sadly passed away at the age of 31. She had bravely battled MND for 11 years. She had never given up and had achieved to much even after developing MND, winning the Open University award for achievement to gaining a degree. She will be greatly missed and will for ever be in our thoughts. Love you sis :D

Well where to start, it was all originally done as I was carry to much weight and wanted to loose it. Which I am sure it most peoples story begins, however after loosing the weight I actually started to enjoy running outside. Joined some forums (BCTTT & Runners World), there inspiration and helpfullness has helped me a lot. Now I am also swimming and commuting a couple of times a week to work on my bike! Now since 2011 I accomplished more than I thought I ever would or could. From 5k runs to an Ironman in 2014 and The Outlaw in 2015. In 2016 I am going down a different route, I will be trying Ultra's as you can see from my events I have already entered 3 so far. Now I thought wait a minute I need to have one more motivation and that people is my sister Emma. Since the age of 20 she was very unfortunate and developed MND (Motor Neurone Disease), she is now 31 years of Age. Her health has deteriatated over the years and we nearly lost her last year. My mum had to give up her work and become a full time carer for my sister and my dad takes over the duties when he comes home from work. All the races I do will be in aid of my sister and all money raised will be donated to MND to help raise awareness and research in the disease. Thanks for all your help and enjoy my training blog,

13th October

As I said yesterday this is was a day for me to go for a sports massage, this time it was for an hour. Having been before I was fully expected in what was going to happen. Pain and lots of it, to be honest it is more pain than even I can cope with but I just have to bear it as I keep saying it is for the best. I will tell you tomorrow if I am still feeling the effects. My leg muscles are all feeling the effects of the massage and I almost feel like I should be walking like John Wayne lol. However though my calf muscles do feel a little better. Another few hours and it will be time for my flag football training.

Well did the flag football training, for those that do not know it is actually myself that runs the club have done since 2002. All, well most of the club achievements are listed here. 2 hours of nice easy training. 1 st hour was just going over the basics, routes, catching, defensive positions etc. Then the last hour game time out thie first hour of practice into use. Went home and had dinner, yes a late dinner which consisted of 2 fried egg sandwiches and then collapse on the couch. To be then woken up at 2am by Yvonne (Wife) to tell me to get to bed, lol.

Speak to you all tomorrow
