*9 days until the race*
Good day to you dear reader! No posts from me since July 1st because I’ve been throwing myself at last minute admin for the row – last minute purchases, organising my pre-race party, writing e-mails and on and on. It seems no matter how organised I am or how organised I feel something popped up almost every day last week!
So, yesterday I did my final course to prepare me for going to sea. In the past 40 days I have learned a lot about ocean rowing and nautical safety but yesterday’s course was by far the most fun! I tested out my new waterproof camera, here are some pictures:
In 9 days I arrive in Ibiza to begin my final mental preparation for racing 200 miles, non-stop, from there to Barcelona. It might take 2 days (unlikely!), it could take 4. All I know is that in 12 days I’ll be out on the Mediterranean Sea and rowing hard in the sun and having a laugh to cover the fear and physical exertions!
I’m doing this in aid of NOMAN is an Island: Race to End HPV and I would really appreciate it if you could donate a dollar or a pound by visiting my page! 41 days ago I had absolutely no idea I’d be doing this. I have covered all the cost of training, flights, accommodation and all the other hidden bits that pop up – every penny you donate will go to NOMAN and will help to promote the use of the HPV vaccine globally and universally, thus ending 5% of all cancers!
