My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page, it is much appreciated.[/p][p]Over the last few years I have competed in dozens of different races involving swimming, cycling and running, and this year I took on my toughest challenge yet, Norseman, an extreme triathlon which started with a pre-dawn leap from a ferry into a freezing fjord, then a 180km bike ride followed by a marathon, it was epic and thank you for sponsoring me and donating to Mind, the mental health charity, your support helped me to just keep on going.[/p][p]I know many friends and loved ones who have faced mental heath problems and I want to continue to fundraise for Mind, so I am doing one last challenge this year to raise more money. This time it is a swim/run race over 45 kilometres in the Lake District. I will swim in my trainers and run in my wetsuit with 18 different transitions from swim to run and back again. [/p][p]It is going to be cold, it is going to be tough, I will have moments when I will question why I on earth I am doing it, and your support, and generous donations, will keep me going in the dark moments I will face along the way.[/p][p]Thank you in advance.[/p][p]x Louise [/p][p](Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.)[/p]
