Firstly can a say a massive thank you to all your teamand volunteers who where at the Cheshire triathlon in Nantwich yesterday
I had never been so frightened of anything than taking onthis huge personal achievement, last April I had Breast care surgery for veryearly stage Breast cancer Now I was one of the lucky ones and got away almostscott free But for a Middle Ages overweight smoker it was time to change mylife around So in February this year I started with some walking to try andloose weight and get a little bit fitter
So as you can see to complete the pink wave is something I'm extremely proud of.
Your staff where absolutely amazing from the lady who aspoke when I registered just 3 weeks ago who convinced me I could do this for(I think her name was Jackie but I'm not sure ) For everyone shoutingencouragement to me on my ride To the lady at the finish line who I fell intoher arms crying (sorry but theachievement and the emotion of the day just got to me
) When she put that medal around my neck my friend andfamily where all crying with me she arranged photos and loads off them (Pleasecan you advise how I get hold of these )
