Caroline Klinge's Fundraiser:

2010/2011: Caz's Year of the Challenge

At the beginning of 2010 I decided I neede a personal challenge. I decided to test my levels of endurance and abilities by innocently aiming to:

1. cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (the length of Britatin)
2. run the London marathon
3. climb Mount Kilimanjaro

To give me additional incentive to succeed I chose to support and raise awareness for the exceptional charity "Help for Heroes" which raises money to support members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in service to their country. There is an added relevance to me as my cousin's husband is a serving member of the Armed Forces and has already undertaken several tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

So I began my training and found I really enjoyed it. With endorphins taking over I decided I would extend my agenda from the original three to at least one a month from March 2010 to June 2011 which marks my attempted ascent of Kili.

What I have achieved so far@
1. ran the England Kilomathon (26.2km ran in 2:34:36)
2. Cycled Lands End to Pitlochry in 12 days
3. London Marathon (26.2 miles ran in 4:23:46)

11. Scottish Half marathon (13.1miles ran in 2:02:45)
