It's going to be tough - Olympic Distance Triathalon

No, not me!

But my brilliant step-son Adam is doing it in August and is raising funds through sponsorship for Parkinson's UK. I know he can do it (he recently run the Manchester Marathon in 3 hours) and any support will be most appreciated.

Here's a link to his Just Giving page on facebook: https://www.justgiving.com/Adam-Chap...fb_ref=Default

Your step-son sounds a really nice lad. I liked his posting on the Just Giving site.
