This one is a personal blog post. Not something that I do all that often. I hope you won’t mind too much.
Last year, I agreed to take part in the 2017 Moonwalk with some awesome women.
Two things were different in my life when I signed up.
First of all, I was pretty fit. I worked out every day, sometimes twice. But some pretty big life stuff has got in the way during this last six months or so, and I’m nowhere near as fit as I was this time last year when I was busy doing triathlons and mud runs and the like. So truthfully, I’m worried about being able to complete it.
The second thing that I didn’t know when I signed up for the walk was that my mum was about to get diagnosed with breast cancer. The very disease for which I had agreed to walk over 26 miles through the night. Not knowing how close it was going to come to home.
My strong and powerful mum has not let this diagnosis stop her. She’s faced tough times before and she has been an inspiration throughout her treatment. I would have taken it from if her I could. Instead, I can do this. Try and raise some money so that one day no other woman will have to go through what my mum, and too many other women, has gone through.
So if you fancy sponsoring me and the rest of #TeamUnicorn to walk through the night for all women, here is the link.
Thank you in advance.
