5 PEAKS CHALLENGE. MAY 4TH 2019
This year sees me hitting the ripe old age of “50”! To celebrate you may have thought I would have a party? Relax, chill out, enjoy a bit of the high lifeJ?
Luckily you know me better than that. As with previous years I’m setting myself up with a challenge that will cause many to question my sanity!
I intend to run up 5 mountains; starting with Ben Nevis, Scotland finishing with Snowdon, Wales. The other 3 mountains are Scaffel Pike, Helvellyn and Skiddaw in the Lake District. I will be cycling the 500 miles between these mountains and hopefully completing the challenge in 5 days!
Why? Firstly, I am fit and healthy so the opportunity to raise some funds for a local cause that is close to my heart was always going to drive me on. Alex Wood, a highly active 33-yr-old husband and father-of-four, suffered a tragic head injury on 4 October 2011. This year I am supporting “Making Waves for Alex”.
Secondly, I am applying the “Can do” rather than the “Can’t do” approach!
IF YOU DON’T GIVE IT A GO HOW WILL YOU EVER KNOW?
