I am married, with 2 teenage daughters, and a little white Westie.
I try to keep fit, and each year set myself a new challenge as an incentive. So far these have included the Great North Run, the Leeds Half Marathon, the Brownlee Triathlon at Harewood House, the Yorkshire three peaks, and the National three peaks (Ben Nevis, Scafell & Snowdon in 24 hours!). I also use these events as a fundraising opportunities for the Leeds Cancer Centre.
