The circle of people sit hushed as I start to stand up, my voice cracks as I begin to speak, the pressure of owning up to the reality of the situation bites deep into my very soul, but some how the words come out " Hello, my names Paul and I am having a midlife crisis". Someone mutters a response about one day at a time or something but I don't really hear it, my own words drowning out the other voice as it registers that today I am 40.

Okay a bit dramatic I know but what else explains the fact that today of all days (my 40th birthday) I am doing an Olympic distance triathlon, (1m swim, 40km cycling and 10km run) for cancer research UK. I manage to beat my target time of 3 hours by a couple of minutes, if only I could do the front crawl in the swim it would be 20 minutes less.

A big thanks to all those who sponsored me and I will pass on the total raised at some point soon.
