10th July 2017
John has sent us an update on his progress towards the Iron Man Challenge he is competing in at Bolton on 16th July:
Less than a week to go now and I’m tapering off the training to hopefully be fresh for what will no doubt be a long day. I’ve been quite lucky with illness and injury but still a little nervous to make sure I get to the start line 100%. I’m really pleased and grateful for all the support I’ve received and chuffed I’ve almost reached my £1000 target for the charity. Lots of people have been very generous with many commenting what a great cause it is! My biggest thanks must go to Julie my wife for allowing me the time to put all the hours in to get to this point; from waking her at 5:30 am three times a week for a swim to going out early on Sunday morning for 80 mile bike rides!! As the day gets tougher on Sunday I will no doubt draw down for inspiration from David.
Good Luck John! We will look forward to seeing before and after pictures! You can sponsor John at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/johnwrintmore1
