So, we are almost here, I have had a serious back injury and had to consult a Chiropractor in Antwerp... No not that kind, a professional one.. Then , shortly after I got a little fitter, I started to run faster and quickly Tore my Left then Right Calf Muscle, one day I actually heard it POP !!! I will be doing the IRON MAN with a torn left calf, and it will be heavily strapped, so my heart is willing but the body now is 49 Years old...

SO. when I first met Julia Styles.. and heard the story of her beautiful daughter Emily VERY sadly passing away on Jan 1 2014 of Meningitis B. This tragic story of a beautiful girl at the start of her adult life, in a loving relationship with Ben. . I could only get involved. I expected to just run 5k in support... but as you get fitter.. and gi through the pain of training. Injuries and fatugue.. your goals change.. my goal now is : 40km cycle. 10km Run.. 1.5 open water swim.... a mountain to climb when I was 16.5 stone in November 2014.
