My story

[p]Hello everyone,[/p][p]I guess the time I realised I was no longer at my fighting weight was when the children in Alex's class surrounded me one morning in the playground and pointing at my belly shouted "fatty, fatty, fatty".[/p][p]"Little cuties" I said through gritted teeth in front of their sniggering parents.[/p][p]But they were right and as much as Deborah may tell me that I have still "got it".  I needed to do something drastic.[/p][p]I therefore enrolled myself in "Ironman" UK triathlon.  To complete an Ironman you have to swim 3.8km, cycle 180km and then for the last leg run a full marathon without stopping on 22nd July.  Since starting my training I have lost the equivalent in weight of my 4 year old daughter and counting.[/p][p]I am swimming, cycling and running for Scope charity who support disabled children and adults and anything you can spare would be very much appreciated.[/p][p]Thanks again[/p][p] [/p][p]Simon[/p][p] [/p]
