In 2 weeks I will be running in the “Escape from Alcatraz” Triathlon. Notice I said “running”. This means that I am neither fit enough, talented enough, or crazy enough to swim across shark infested waters or bike for miles up and down hills in San Francisco. I will, however, run a hilly 8 miles, some of it along the beach and up 400 sand stairs. This is crazy enough for me!!
I will be doing this to raise money for a very worthy cause “B*CURED”, a charity that is dedicated to raising money to advance treatment for brain cancer. As you may be aware, cancer affecting the brain is fairly common, and can be very difficult to treat. There is much to be learned and advances to be made in this area to achieve better survival and quality of life outcomes.
If you check out this link (https://www.crowdrise.com/2014Escape/fundraiser/marksumeray), you will see that I am running as part of a relay team, named “A limey and 2 yanks”. I think this is self-explanatory. Having seen the photograph of Jon posing in his wet suit, it is clear that this guy is crazy enough to attempt the swim. Enough said.
If you would be willing to donate to this worthy cause and support my drive to raise funds then any contribution would be wonderful and very much appreciated. No amount is too small!
