Just a quick message really.
I am competing in what has been called The Spine Race, a 268 mile non stop winter ultra marathon across the Pennines in the month of January (yep, my thoughts exactly) I do quite a bit for charity when I can and try and find something out of the ordinary to test myself, this time I may have bitten more off than I can chew!
More information on the event can be found here
I have personal reasons for my chosen charity this time, whilst I was serving in Afghanistan my mothers cancer had returned (unsuspectingly, & for a woman who has never smoked, walked the hills with the dogs every day & only drinks a white wine spritzer on a saturday evening) and the disappointing news was awaiting my arrival. The support that came from MacMillan during this difficult period was absolutely overwhelming and this is my thank you to my mothers nurse and the rest of the team, but more can be read here
Any donations or words of encouragement are more than gratefully received and I thank you in advance
