It’s quite ironic that I should be lying in the RVI, the home of Tiny Lives.
On the 21/12/13, I collapsed while attempting to run 12 parkruns in one day. Lee and I managed a respectable 34 out of 37 miles. I never gave up but unfortunately my legs did.
I’ve been called stupid, crazy and do I regret putting my health at risk?
No I don’t.
Life is full of twists and turns and ups and downs. You don’t get anywhere in life by playing it safe. Sometimes, you need to push the boundaries and see what you’re capable of. I wanted to be put in a place I’ve never been before. I just didn’t think that would be an ambulance and the RVI, haha!
Lee and I can’t thank you all enough for the support leading up to, during and after the challenge. One particular text sticks in my mind “A challenge isn’t a challenge if you complete it and then do more. A real challenge is when you push yourself to the very end.” Well I certainly did that…
This is not how I want to remember this challenge. As you can see from my previous few posts, it was an amazing day for an amazing cause. Lee and I have raised roughly £1300 (with gift aid) for Tiny Lives.
On the 4th of January, Lee and I will run Riverside parkrun to complete the challenge. We hope you can all come to support us and Tiny Lives. I was down but I’m not out.
