My story

[p]Through my time in the Army I've seen some of the incredible things that SSAFA does to help both serving personnel and veterans. Whilst I've not needed their help yet who knows what the future may hold.[/p][p]To give back to this amazing charity I've decided it is time to properly challenge myself, so on 22nd April 18 I'll be competing in the London Marathon in a full suit of Gothic plate armour. As part of my challenge I've decided to try and break the world record for the fastest marathon in a suit of armour, this currently stands at 6hr 46mins 59sec.[/p][p]I've completed 4 Ironman Triathlons so am not a stranger to endurance events; however, I think this is without a doubt my craziest and hardest challenge to date.[/p][p]I'll be posting regular updates both here and on my FB so people can follow my training progress. Any support you can give will be hugely appreciated[/p]

Seems a pitiful amount for all the pain and discomfort you put yourself through, but at least hope it helps you get a bit closer to your target. Well done!
