20 Challenges in 24 months leading to my 40th Birthday for 10 wonderful charities....                                        

                             

 So as I approach that time where 'life begins' I wanted to mark it with something a bit different rather than a couple of weeks on a beach.....

...so as the panic of getting old became a reality I decided to get all those challenges I 'wanted' to do in before the big day but also give something back to some wonderful charities who have helped both myself and my family and some good friends during the most challenging moments of their life.

The midlife crisis involves completing 20 challenges in the 2 years leading up to my 40th birthday on the 15th December 2018. Yes I know what you're all thinking, I've still got another 10 years before I hot 40 surely.....alas not.....
.....the challenge starts on the 14th January 2017 with the Spine Challenger which is a 108 mile trek along the Pennine Way between Edale and Hawes in 60 hours. Always start with the easy one is my motto!!!
This works out at a challenge approximately every 18 days. Some challenges are tough, very tough, but others will be 5k runs and planned into the two year as it progresses.
