So with little over a week to go, minimal cardio work in the gym and my weekly helping of McDonalds at Waterloo all ticked! I thought it was about time to set up my charity page supporting Macmillan for the Tough Mudder challenge on Saturday 8 June.
At this point you are probably thinking, yeah well done you are doing a Tough Mudder, whatever that is… so a brief explanation; the Tough Mudder is a 12 mile run with 25-40 obstacles of hell including such delights as the Arctic Enema, Ball Shrinker and Electroshock Therapy! Oh and we also have to sign a death waiver!
So, now for the serious stuff, I’m raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support as it is a charity that means so much to me. I wanted to do this insane challenge because it will be 4 years since my mum passed away at the end of June and the Macmillan nurses that helped her everyday were the most caring, thoughtful, empathetic and patient people that I have ever met. We absolutely could not have got through that period without their help and from seeing it first hand, the work they do is incredible and I wanted to do my bit to make sure they can continue to help others that find themselves in such a difficult and at times helpless situation. So please dig deep and donate now. Thank you.
