Peter Fletcher tells us he is competing in this year's Ironman Wales, which is a fixture on the International Ironman Triathlon circuit (which culminates in the World Championship race in Kona, Hawaii ... although I'm nowhere near that standard!).
The event comprises of a 2.4 mile sea swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride and topped off with a full marathon, so 140.6 miles completed all in one go.
The event is on the 8th September in Tenby, Pembrokeshire and is my first attempt at such a distance.
Following a number of offerings from friends and family regarding sponsorship (i had previously entered just for the fun of it), i decided that it would be a good opportunity to raise a bit of money, especially if people were willing. My wife Sarah Fletcher has recently started a new job in the Beacon Centre (she is one of the specialist Speech and Language Therapists there), so after a little research your charity seemed quite fitting.
