Hi, I have spina bifida and over the past 4 years have changed my life. I have lost over 7 stone in weight, become more active in sports and healthy lifestyle and i have also started to challenge myself. In 20010 i signed up for the inca trail trek in peru for a local charity. Over the following 18 months this would become a major event for me. The training and experiences i went through allowed me to complete something i never thought possible. I do have problems walking and have limited use of my legs, so the training wasnt easy.
I have now signed up to complete another two major events in 2013 that will again push me to my limit. firstly the london to Paris bike ride with 4 days of cycling, followed by the slateman triathlon in snowdonia national park.
My training for these events will begin in September 2012 after i have had my most recent surgery in July of this year.
Please support my charity shine who do amazing things for people with spina bifida!!
