    Hi JCL - can you please put me down for this? I am no 62 in 2013 but don't mind whether I stay the same or not. However, I'm not sure what my target is because we're not sure what our finances are doing. Is it easy enough to change my target during the challenge? If it is then can you start me off with a target of £7000 and I'll hopefully raise it over the year.... Thanks :T

    I'd like to take part again next year please. Not as optimistic as this year when me and the bro stuck a lump sum on mortgage, but still quite a significant amount.

    As our payment goes down each month that we put an overpayment on, it is a bit hard to guess how much we plan to overpay, but for now I'm going to £12,000.

    Please can I join for 2014. My mortgage is up for renewal in December 14 so I really want to crack down on it throughout the year to get the best deal.

    Therefore my target is to overpay £12,000!
