Competing For Bliss
My husband Dan has been participating in some triathlon events this year and has so far completed two and done really well coming 7th overall at his last event (can you tell I'm a bit proud!)
He has trained incredibly hard for the Big One 'Virgin Active London Triathlon' which is happening this Sunday. For those of you not up on your triathlons, it is basically where you swim, then cycle, then run all in one race. Dan will be completing the olympic distance so he will swim 1500m, then cycle 40km then run 10km, I'm tired just typing it! He will be taking part to raise funds for 'Bliss' the charity for babies born too sick or too soon.
As some regular readers will know our son Murphy was born very premature and at this time we found the advice given by Bliss incredibly useful at what was obviously a very stressful time. They work tirelessly to support both parents and to campaign for better treatment & services for both the babies and their families.
So far Dan has raised over £600 but it would be great if we could get this just a little bit higher, so if you'd like to show your support for Bliss by visiting his just giving page, www.justgiving.com/Danny-Rutter we would really appreciate it.
