MICHELLE KIENER'S LONDON TRIATHLON ACHIEVEMENT

Sunday 6th August 2006

Total sponsorship raised to date is 1,491.00

Every year Michelle does something amazing to help raise funds for Cancer Research. She does this in special memory of her mother, champion line dancer Irene Kiener, and the friends she has who have been afflicted or affected by this dreadful disease. I am, personally, full of admiration for her ......... her courage in tackling these daunting tasks matches that shown by her amazing mother during her long battle with Cancer.

.................. .................. ...................

How did I do? Just to remind you what I was doing, it was:

1st Swim = 1.5km (0.93 miles)

2nd Bike = 40km (24.86 miles)

3rd Run = 10km (6.21 miles)

Well... I did it!

And man, it was not easy. Especially the run, which is normally my favorite part. I already knew on the bike that I didn't feel in great shape, and that was confirmed when I started the run. My left knee grumbled all the way around the 10K, with my mind only taken off it by how bad my stomache felt. None of which was helped by how hot it was by the time it came to run. And there was no shade to be had running around the dock. The swim, well, I plodded my way through the swim which meant I had it all to do on the bike and the run. But the most important thing was that I survived the swim, which for someone who couldn't even swim 25m in January, well I'm happy with that. What's it like swimming in the docks? Cold (although no one else agreed with me on that one!), salty and it tastes of petrol, yuck!

And yes, I am quite sore. Watching me tackle stairs is pretty entertaining for everyone else right now. Don't laugh guys - carry me! It's still not as hard as fighting cancer though I reckon. It was tough, but I only had to fight for 3 hours or so, not days, weeks or years like many cancer patients. If you haven't sponsored me yet, please dig deep and give what you can to beat this horrible disease. And HUGE thanks again to those who have already sponsored. You are all stars and knowing how much was riding on it on the day helped to keep me going.

The continuing work of Cancer Research is so very important. I really did dig deep, train hard and push myself to complete the London triathlon. So I'm asking you again to dig deep for this tireless charity and to sponsor me online if you haven't already. If we meet my target of 2,575.00 we will have raised 50.00 for every 100m I covered.

If you would like to help me reach my target then I can still be sponsored online at this site until the 6th of October 2006 ......... Michelle's Triathlon Donation Page
