Hi all,

I have a close family connection to MS with my mother in law having one of the most severe forms of the condition. This is something that I feel very strongly about and thus I am challenging myself to all 7 (yes 7) Tough Mudder races in the UK in 2014.

If anyone has done an adventure/obstacle race you will know how hard these are. I did my 1st one last year (and incidently raised 600 which is amazing) which was incredibly hard, both mentally and physically. I did 3 months of training for this event which was as hard if not harder than the race day to keep going out in all weather no matter if I had a good, bad, easy or hard day at work.

The 1st race is in April so my training is to be aimed at progression with this date in mind, then on to training for the next, then the next, then the next.............. In August there is 2 events in 2 weeks!!!!!!

Good effort,

What's the distance involved in that?

Fair play I say to anyone willing to push themselves to raise awareness of issues that mean a lot to them.

Nice one pal,

I'm doing a subsea cable project from the mainland to the Isle of While at around that time so I may be able to drop by to support.

Cheers
