My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page, it is much appreciated.[/p][p]Over the last 5 years or so I have competed in dozens of different races involving swimming, cycling and running, and this year I am taking on my toughest challenge yet, Norseman. It is an extreme triathlon which starts with a pre-dawn leap from a ferry into a freezing fjord, then a 180km bike ride followed by a marathon which depending on whether I make the very tight cut off time may or may not end at the top of a mountain. [/p][p]This time, I am not just taking part because it's an incredible challenge but also to support and fundraise for Mind, the mental health charity. I know many friends and loved ones who have faced mental heath problems and Mind helps people in lots of different ways.[/p][p]I know it is going to be a really tough day so thank you for your support, and donations, they will keep me going in the dark moments I will face along the way.[/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]
