The team’s bruises have gradually turned from black to purple following a really successful (thank goodness!) event at the weekend. We undertook the challenge of Tough Mudder in memory of my lovely friend Lesley and her daughter Rosina.
Lesley (left) was an incredible person who inspired and was a true friend to a great many people – hence the fact that she was taken away from us in such a twist of fate is still very difficult to come to terms with.
We know that CRY is an amazing charity who support the friends and families of those who have lost someone, but in particular the fact that CRY funds crucial research into why this happens is very important to us, as Lesley’s case is still (and is likely to remain) an unknown.
My husband Tony, friend Martin and I completed the 12 mile, 25 obstacle, Tough Mudder North West course on Saturday 5th October in just under 3 hours.
We completed ALL the obstacles (and by that I mean actually did them!) less the monkey bars which we all fell off! You will see why if you check out the YouTube video below!
We didn’t expect to manage some of it and it was VERY muddy even for a Tough Mudder, so to say we are pleased is an understatement! With the help of a great bunch of friends and family, we have raised a total of around £1300 which we are delighted with; and hopefully this will go some way to supporting and raising awareness of CRY.
Below is a picture of us at the end – as you know, the CRY t-shirts were white at the beginning!! – and there is a YouTube link to a spectator’s video of the course (not a video of us, but it gives a good overview of what we did!).
