Maughany Gives It a Tri!

Much to my suprise, my carefree application for the London Triathlon this July turned out to be successful. So I will be running (very far behind) the footsteps of the Brownlee brothers around London.

Training has begun in earnest and the three disciplines have already ensured that my body is sore all over (don't get me started on Transititions!).

I will be competing in the Olympic Distance Men's event on the Sunday which consists of a 1.5km Swim, followed by a 40km bike and then finishing with a heavy-legged 10km run.

The charity that I am raising money for is Chordoma UK, a charity which my best mate's Mum, Sue Fitz-Gibbon founded after being diagnosed herself in 2007.

Chordoma is a rare primary bone cancer, meaning that it arises in bone (rather than spreads to bone). The bones involved are those at the base of the skull, the vertebral bodies (back bones), and the bone of the sacrum and coccyx at the base of the spine. Chordoma is thought to arise from a persistent embryonic tissue (notochordal cells), which normally disappears before birth, but can persist in some people. However, the majority of individuals with notochordal remnants do not develop chordoma. Chordoma is part of a family of cancers called sarcoma, which include cancers of the bones, cartilage, muscles and other connective tissue. Chordomas are generally slow growing, and tend to recur after treatment.

I am very much aware that for students, there is never a good time to give money. But if you could bear a slightly smaller Sainsbury's trip this week, then it would really mean alot to myself and the Fitz-Gibbons.
