Mission Complete!

When I woke this morning for the start of day 3, everything hurt and I knew the day was going to be tough.  The last 5 miles of the run was pretty excruciating with swelling in my hip from 3 solid days of running.  It was a great relief to get to Ryde and get into the water to do something other than running.

The swim went really well, although we were pulled off course by the tide a little adding an extra 0.4 miles to the total distance and testing the skills of the watersports team who corrected our course and kept us safe.

Today as we finally walked back up the beach at Stokes Bay, I was in awe of how many people had come down to the beach to support us.  I could hear their cheers from the water and it really spurred us on, so thank you all.

Again I cant thank the support team enough for the work they have put in, not just in the last 3 days, but in the 9 months leading up to the event, you helped us make it the great success it was.  We not only raised a huge amount of money for the charity but also raised the profile of pancreatic cancer.

You have my total gratitude

Kindest regards,
