Today is the first day of the Challenge and it's without me. At the weekend I withdrew, which wasn't an easy decision. I had been looking forward to taking part once again, but recently my fatigue levels seem to have been going up. I could only see them going up still further if I was taking part, so I decided to withdraw before it started and let someone else take my place rather than having to withdraw part-way through.
Anyway, despite withdrawing I will be following everyone's efforts and cheering them on.
So, I'll leave this post by wishing all those taking part this year the very best of luck in achieving and exceeding their targets.
