The countdown begins… 14 days until the Melbourne Ironman, the weather forecast is out and looking good. The serious training is over, Taper time (you beauty). It’s been a longer than normal slog to get my body ready for Iron 5 for 55. The last 3 months has been the hardest in my career.
I may be backing off the training but now its 13 days of Cancer Council SA research awareness.
“Over the next five years Cancer Council SA will invest $10 million into targeted cancer research from the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). This significant investment will be matched by SA Health resulting in a doubling of funds to $20 million for cancer research.”
“The Beat Cancer Project will ensure that the donations given by our generous supporters are targeted to cancer research projects that are needed most. This project is leading a new era in the fight against cancer here in South Australia with the vision to bring us closer to a future without cancer.
Lets make tomorrow Mad Monday for Iron 5 for 55. With the generous support from the The Lakes Resort Hotel the first 55 to spend $50 or more will go into a draw to win one nights complimentary stay for 2 in one of their executive spa suites including a full buffet breakfast. Those who have already purchased $50 or more will also go into this draw .
