I just had my photo – the one in Posterous profile – converted to a cartoon. Does it look like me? J I uploaded my photo to http://www.cartoonme.com on Monday and paid my €3.50 and true to their word my cartoon picture was emailed back to me within 72 hours. They pride themselves on producing good quality, handmade images. If you want your pictures ‘cartoonised’ then give them a try.

We received the latest photos of the teak house build in Thailand. Upstairs and downstairs bathrooms have been bricked up and the cement floor downstairs has been laid. More roofing and ceiling work has gone in. We are looking forward to the coming months and further photos!

The event takes place on Saturday 19th of June - two days before the summer solstice. I have about 2 hours to complete my leg. So, I am back in training. One, to loose another 2 stone and get my weight down to a comfortable 10 stone race weight, and two, to get myself fit enough to complete the challenge. It's 15 weeks till the race, so it is do-able. I plan to get my race speed up to at least 9 minute miles, hopefully 8 minute miles and complete my leg in less than 90 minutes; a tough challenge for a 54 year-old office wallah. Heck, it will only be a couple of weeks short of my 55th birthday!
This event is a sponsored event so, over the next 15 weeks I will not only be posting a training progress report, I will also be touting for sponsorship!
Wish me luck!
