Eek! What have I agreed to? Tough Mudder? Well let me give you a little back story first.
This time last year I was struggling with persistent breathing problems, long-term back pain and a generally slothful lifestyle. At the start of 2019 I made the decision to try to turn things around. As well as a more healthy diet (shout to my other half for doing the cooking) I’ve taken up running. I’m not quite ready to do a marathon or anything, but I can do a solid 20 minutes before exploding into a ball of flame – which not so long ago I would have thought was impossible!
The knock on effects have really surprised me. Not only can I run, but my back pain and breathing problems have almost completely gone. I have loads more energy, and I honestly think my mind is clearer.
So – that’s a small personal journey I’m on at the moment, but I’ve agreed to partake in aÂ tough mudderÂ with my friends atÂ Not Just NumbersÂ (they’re terrific accountants). The cause is close to my heart, as it’s for Cancer Research UK. I lost both my mum and sted dad to cancer and my husband suffered a brain tumour a few years ago, so I really appreciate the work the charity do.
Anyway, with just under a week to go, I’m limbering up to make my debut appearance in the world. I’m a bit apprehensive about the prospect of moving that much, but I’m assured it’s actually great fun.
Anyway. That’s my tedious back story. I’d be delighted if you could find a few coppers (or even more!) to help us reach our target and help the charity in the great work they do.
Assuming I survive I’ll see you again soon!
