It's been a while.......
Sundays event will mark the end of my efforts for the year, event wise anyway. Monday morning, Caroline and I fly out to Paphos, with our nearest and dearest to be married, and I couldn't have imagined anything more perfect, other than to have Lloydy with me, but I know, as with everyday when I've needed him he'll be there and I don't doubt that come 4pm on 26th October he'll be by my side then to! However the training carries on, a rolling stone gathers no moss, and until this stone can roll no more, no moss will grow. When I thought about doing this challenge I could only hope that it would become what it has, they way it has brought us all together has been amazing, and to achieve what we have has gone way beyond the aspirations I had, which were to be fair, to coin a phrase was just to "crawl across the finish line using my eyelids if I have to!"
When I think about next years challenges I know that come March I'll be in Aldershot, July in Colchester and September in Catterick. The Fan Dance in January is now a no go, as I've decided that maybe it's time just to have a little rest from putting so much pressure on myself and just having a bit of quality time for a few months with my very gorgeous wife, I think I've earnt that. And besides a few months rest will only make me hungrier and ready for more, to surpass the achievements of this year and to make brighter still the legacy of my darling little brother. I want to thank you all, for what you have helped us achieve, because without that support our efforts wouldn't have seemed quite so great. This year we planted an acorn, I'm determined to see it grow into a mighty oak, I guess as an analogy that's pretty apt.
You are and always will be my inspiration, my hero little brother - blue skies xxx
