My Story

It's time! I'm late! Can I even do it? Yikes!

It's the last few days before this slightly big undertaking. I certainly haven't prepared in the way I imagined I might. Not that that seems unusual for me. However, I've been sick lately. Sure, others are doing 60 km. Sure people do mega things. But me...I've got dodgy knees, and malformed feet; have been quite sick with a cold AND a wee bout of gastro; and am feeling bereft about the passing a of a lovely acquaintance- A powerhouse of a woman, that I feel lucky to have known, even a bit.  

And so it is with these mixtures of recovery, and sadness, and inspiration to use my body while I can, that I will go on this walk. Can anyone spare a fiver or a tenner to sponsor me and my team mates to raise some funds for the Fred Hollows foundation, please? It's one of the good ones, and while I don't usually attempt these sort of things, I'm excited to give it a bash, albeit without proper training (and only using my old netball runners). Wish me luck! And take care. xo

Thank you to my Sponsors
