So the day is almost nigh - tomorrow I shall be plugging away at a 13 mile/21 kilometre course that is apparently very hilly. Plus it's set to be windy. Plus I have only just arrrived back from a tropical climate. Plus I have been cramming what training I can get in to the last few days.
All very good reasons why you should consider donating what you can to Jack Tizard School's "Big Splash Trust" which aims to support some of the most vulnerable and severely disabled children in our community. You can find more info about the school and it's work in my write-up here. You can donate directly here.
But here's the school head Cathy Welsh herself:
"Many thanks for your interest in making a donation to the Big Splash Trust.
The Big Splash Trust has been established to extend the use of our hydrotherapy pool to children in the community and to provide improved learning facilities for the pupils at Jack Tizard School.
We have a very aspirational vision for the future and believe passionately that children like those attending Jack Tizard should have good quality life and learning experiences.
If you chose to donate to The Big Splash Trust your money would be used to support children in the community use our hydrotherapy pool or purchase a piece of sensory equipment to improve our sensory learning environment e.g. a sensory wall or bubble tube either for use in the school or hydrotherapy pool.
Your donation would make a big difference to the life and learning opportunities of children with multisensory learning difficulties".
