After 5 months of training – very long runs in the snow, rain and baking sun; and going to the gym 6 times a week – I can finally take a well deserved break as an official Tough Mudder!
I’m over the moon at having completed the course in under 2 and a half hours and feel a massive sense of achievement. More importantly, by doing both the Bristol 10K and the Tough Mudder event I’d like to think I have raised more awareness for CRY. I hope the kind sponsorship from all of you will help them in their fight for their cause and hopefully what happened to my son will not happen to somebody else.
The Tough Mudder event was very hard but at the same time very enjoyable. It was made harder due to the fact I injured my ankle 1 mile into the course….followed by my knee…. followed by my calf…. but it didn’t manage to stop me from hobbling over that finish line!
I want to thank you all for your support and I am truly overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. In total I managed to raise £2,133 for CRY in memory of my son Rio and I know I’ve made him proud!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much!
