Why… well The Marathon des Sables has always been on my bucket list and when a good friend completed it last year and another the year before I thought I’d better get on and just do it. After my dad passed away from lung cancer I have always tried to raise money for cancer-related charities, It seems that cancer at some point touches all our life’s. So by me enduring a little physical and mental pain and raising money for Yorkshire Cancer Research will be a small price to pay.
I have always toyed with the idea of doing a blog, not that I am sure people will read it. As part of my journey with this challenge I’ve decided to blog about everything I’m doing, the physical training, equipment selection, raising the money and general day to day stuff.
