I have walked 1000 miles, and I will walk 1000 more…

1609 kilometres, 160934400 centimetres, 2 million steps… However you want to measure it a thousand miles is a pretty long way!

Luckily a little patience, time and strength work in the gym (not a place you would otherwise find me!) have meant I […]

Exploring Tenerife – Volcanos, Turtles & Tapas

Bikini – check, sunglasses – check, shorts, sun cream – check, check. Packing my suitcase these were not the sort of items I had been expecting to take on holiday! Until just over six weeks ago I had been going on a week’s ski mountaineering and winter climbing holiday in Scotland. But sadly, due to a […]

February Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge – Attempt 1

I am going to start by saying this isn’t quite the blog post I expected to be writing! Last Saturday eight friends and I headed up to Harrogate to attempt the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in under 12 hours to raise money and awareness for Foodcycle. That morning preparation had gone well – Frankie was up […]
