(let alone a sprint triathlon!!!) I had panic attacks if I got splashed! The longest bike ride I had completed was to the park! My only positive was that I could run (ish!)!

[b]Carrie [/b][/span][/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt]"Hmmmmm...... Not sure how I got talked into doing this triathlon?? I remember when Carrie called to ask me to enter; it wasn’t long after Dave had completed the Hadrian ’s Wall charity walk with Clarkey, and Rich. They were so amazing and inspiring, I said yes without really realising what was involved, it also seemed a long way off, but now it’s looming around the corner and to be honest I’m a tad scared!! The training has been hard, but also hilarious, we have laughed a lot!  Dave and I have spent many nights out in swimming pools- probably Dave’s best date’s with me yet as  I can’t talk under the water!![/p][p]I know it’s going to be a challenge and when I’m near drowning I will think of Chase and all the incredible support and care they give to all the children, parents, siblings, extended family and friends. So, with that thought in mind, a tow rope around Carrie’s ankle, a little bit of luck and the wind behind us, we will finish! Thank you so much for your support.....this one’s for you Evie xxxx - [b]Fi[/b]"[/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.296875); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);][b] [/b][/span][span=-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.296875); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);]"I originally agreed to do this to support Fi and Carrie but I think I was sold a dummy because my start time is over an hour after theirs. Anyway I am still keen to finish this to make sure that the hours of lane swimming and the gallons of water swallowed won't be in vein. Hopefully along the way we can raise some money for my lovely neice, Evie, and Chase where she spends time. It's an inspiring place and a great cause so thanks for sponsoring us.  [b]Dave[/b][/span][/p][span=line-height: 15px; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.292969); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469); -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto;][lt]p style="margin-top: 0.833em; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0.833em; margin-left: 0px; text-align: justify; padding: 0px;"[gt][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt][lt]span style="-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.292969); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);"[gt]Thanks so much[/span][span=-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.292969); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);] for sponsoring us all....Carrie Xxxx"[/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p][lt]div[gt][span=-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.292969); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/div[gt][lt]p style="margin-top: 0.833em; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0.833em; margin-left: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt] [/p][lt]/span[gt]
