40 this year! How did that happen?
I've set a challenge for Steve and I  to complete an activity event, every month for the year! This builds on the few short events we did in 2016.
We are not athletes, far from it, we just enjoy being out and about and running together. We got the bug for running last year and entered a few small races and this challenge is the next step! This will be our first attempt at triathlons, first attempts at half marathon distance!
While doing this, why not raise some money for a very local and very important charity? As a local paramedic and a parent, I truly welcome the opportunity to support The Murray Parish Trust #2millionsteps campaign to raise money for a childrens ED and trauma unit in Southampton at University hospital. At the moment, current facilities are too small and outdated, the new unit will be state of the art, all singing, all dancing and a fabulous resource for the whole of the South Coast.
