I'm so excited about the challenge! I'm not much of a runner or a cyclist but somehow, every day, I managed to get out there and do it the last time. And I really loved it!

Aside from the benefits of good physical exercise it's great just to get outdoors — hail, rain or shine. Mostly shine from what I can remember last year.

There is also a huge amount of support for challengers. I took to Twitter and Facebook with daily updates — which kept the pressure on too!

It was fantastic and although often you can be out alone — you really feel like part of one big, happy team.
