So, Helping Hearts is notching it up a gear over the next 5 weeks or so.
Challenge number 3 is next weekend (Sunday 5th May) – the Bristol 10k, and we’ll be hoping to hit a PB and get a bit of publicity in Bristol. We’ve got the charming Dave Marsden, and soon-to-be-stag Simon Trebble also pounding the city streets alongside us!
Challenge number 4 is two weeks after that (Sunday 19th May) – where we will be competing in our first ever triathlon at Eton Dorney, through Human Race. Bikes are almost purchased, and Cozzie’s swimming is finally progressing well, so it will definitely be a new challenge for us and one we’re really looking forward to (if a little nervously!). And Dave and Dom have a nice little wager on who will come first, so stay tuned!
Then challenge number 5 is two weeks after that (30th May – 1st June) when we will be climbing the 3 highest peaks of the UK – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon over 3 days, and we have the pleasure of being accompanied by the wonderful Chris and Nic Dennis – we can’t wait!
So stay tuned to hear our progress – read out blog posts over the next few weeks and find out whether Cozzie walks on water or sinks at the triathlon, whether Dave or Dom wins the 10k and the triathlon, and just how lost we get doing the three peaks. And if you can, dip into your pockets to keep us going! https://www.justgiving.com/helpinghearts2013/
