Chrissie Wellington's 8-day challenge

Chrissie Wellington is not doing any Ironman triathlons this year, so will she relax at home and watch TV? No way!

Apart from promoting her autobiography 'A Life Without Limits' (which I just downloaded and started to read by the way), she has come up with the following unique 8-day challenge:
  1. Sun 15 April: run Paris Marathon.
  2. Mon 16 April: bike Paris-Ceril.
  3. Tues 17 April: bike Ceril-Zeebrugge.
  4. Wed 18 April: bike Hull-York-Leeds.
  5. Thu 19 April: bike Leeds-Sheffield-Newark.
  6. Fri 20 April: bike Newark-Cambridge.
  7. Sat 21 April: bike Cambridge-London.
  8. Sun 22 April: run London Marathon.
Chrissie is offering anyone interested the opportunity to bid in a silent auction for the chance to join her on one of the six cycling days in a team of ten cyclists. The auction will close on Friday 6 April, ie. tomorrow, so hurry. All the proceedings will go to the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.

As it happens, I'm also going to run Marathon de Paris, so I'll keep my eyes peeled to catch a glimpse of Chrissie. Fat chance keeping up with her running pace though - she's fast!
