Happy Holiday 22/05/15
Happy Friday with long weekend!!
Our Tough Mudders are getting beaten up week by week!
Mike & Liam are 3 down with 1 to go and fly out to Stockholm on Friday.
As Mike said ‘ Mud Bros is going International init!!! Still getting mud out of my ears ‘….. lucky DD isn’t doing it….
Best of luck the weekend boys
Andrew embarked on his first ever triathlon – going straight in at 70.3 half iron distance.
Andrew really enjoyed the sun drenched quick course at St Polten, Austria, and completed his virgin 3 discipline event in 6 hours , 22 minutes, 19 seconds.
Asked if this was a warm up for the full distance, he said ‘I’m not massively keen but will probably find myself signing up for one at the O2e Gala Dinner later in the year.’
Brilliant achievement and very well done!!!
Our Juniors are off for a monster weekend of sport and adventure!
Daniel, Ollie, Yasmine, Oliver, Daniel, Alexander, Cecilie, Tom, Huw, James and Charlotte will take on a 3 day challenge in Snowdonia, hiking 15 miles up and around Mt Snowdon, mountain biking 40 miles ( nothing too flat around!), testing world’s longest zip wire and rafting a Welsh river.
Many thanks to Klaus for arranging a challenging and fun packed weekend and best of luck to all our Juniors!!
For Daniel this weekend is just a warm up as he’s straight out to the Alps. Daniel will take on the amazing Wetterstein route in the Bavarian Alps, a testing 2 day mountain bike trip totalling 90km with 2000 height metres, circumnavigating Germanys famous Zugspitze standing nearly 10000 feet tall ( 9,995 feet taller than his dad ) Very best of luck Daniel ( and Klaus ).
Timbo aka the Fat Controller is still cracking the whip with some sensational results and writes:
Well The Heavies are going very well.
A little slow down in some and I think we may have lost a couple of the originals altogether. BUT despite that we are flying.

So we are getting there but would be very happy to get loads of support. Join the obese2extraordinary facebook pages and give us all some stick and banter.
Incredible effort everyone, keep up the great work!!
Fundraising can be hard, especially many of you have been banging the drum for many years!
A couple of great initiatives below to give us all some fresh ideas:
Siobhan raised £400 on a cake sale last Bank Holiday Monday!!!! Brilliant amount raised from family and friends-imagine how much she could have raised if she invited Big Kev!!
One of our new Big Kev riders Al Green ( not the Reverend ) has planned a pub quiz night on 28th May
