Thank you so much for the wonderful support of this site. When they asked me to volunteer I had no reservations. I know I have been a bit preoccupied lately. my heart has never been far away. I have had the best day ever I have achieved a dream today in memory of my mum. A 400m swim a 15 km cycle and and a 5km run. A year ago I couldn't run and I could not cycle so toady I am so proud for my mum. As I say I have to thank each and everyone of you giving me the courage.

Thank you so so much.

Thank you. I would say go for it, I did a beginners one, that way they take a bit of pressure off and it's about finishing rather than times. Pm anytime for questions. I am no means an expert though.

A hard earned, much deserved and brilliant achievement RFC! I think that the thanks should be the other way around though, for the inspirational example that you set to the rest of us. I'm not sure whose smile will be the beamiest today - your's or your Mum's :-).
