Trev died aged 61 having always kept himself fit. We had started a new life, semi retired and the future looked good. That future was totally different to what we had expected. Within 18 months Trev had died from a brain tumor but throughout his illness he always maintained his sense of humour and he still thought of others first, despite his terminal diagnosis. His wish was that I carry on my life as best I could and so I started running and I seemed able to do it. That resulted in doing a 10k run as a challenge, which I finished. Since then I have tried to push myself further as a personal challenge but also to honour Trev because I have the chance to do this as my body seems to let me ,whilst Trev’s didn’t. The virtual triathalon covers the whole of August and at 60 years of age it is a huge challenge to do the Iron Man version of 180 km cycling, 42km run and 3.8 km swim. I would like to make Trev proud!
