My story

[p]Hello, thank you for taking the time to visit & read my page.... [/p][p]This year I am taking on the challenge of walking 100km, continuously through the night, not just once but 3 times! [/p][p]These Ultra events are held throughout the UK & my first one is the Jurassic Coast 16/17th May, followed by the Peak District 4/5th July then finally the South Coast Challenge! [/p][p]Having walked my 1st Ultra along the Cotswold Way last summer, I know how tough they are & how fit one needs to be 🙄! [/p][p]I am doing them self-funded BUT would really like to raise as much money as I can for very personal reasons... 3 years ago I was in a v dark place & desp needed some help/counciling & to my relief I found the perfect person at Mind Maidstone. Their lead councilor helped me to understand myself for the 1st time, take some time out & start to look after myself mentally. I will be forever grateful 🙏[/p][p]There is still a huge stigma, I find, talking about mental health & v little help available immediately, rather long waiting lists, questions, forms to fill in etc... [/p][p]So yes, I know being Type 1 Insulin dependant Diabetic, heart disease resulting in quad bypass 5 years ago, I may well struggle with 3X100kms but I really want to encourage others to believe in themselves that ANYTHING is achievable! [/p][p][br][/p][p]So I've managed to up my training walks to 35 miles! I've been pretty lucky avoiding most of the horrendous weather, although this time of year (Feb) there's no avoiding slippery mud/strong winds 🙄! [/p]
