July 27th – Like the Nike Goddess – I just Did It and was Victorious

1999:  Mum’s happy.  Something to do with pay day and me staying in bed until half six.  We sat on the settee for a while and then it was on with the routine.  Returned from Edons today with a bag full of wet clothes.  Luckily it happened on a ‘good day’.  I wish it could be pay day every day!  After mummy had tucked me in and gone downstairs tonight, I decided I wanted my Teddy bear down from his home in the wall hammock.  I thought it best not call mum, so I figured a way to get him by climbing on my chest of drawers.  Mum came running when she heard the ‘thump’ of me hitting the floor.  Fortunately both Teddy and I were fine and snuggled down to sleep.

2019: I started my Snowden run at 6.18 am and I absolutely smashed by 4 hour target with a time of 2:57!! Honestly, I am so happy, I literally broke down in tears, couldn’t believe what I have just achieved; surgery last year, still not in remission and a colonoscopy just 3 days ago. Thank you so much to all the donators and for the support I have had. @crohnsandcolitisuk I have done it not only for you but for all of our community. We are the strongest people and we will ALWAYS push on. Mount Snowden I have smashed you and I was not beaten.

Note to others: If you go early in the morning there is nowhere to get water at the top at this time of day and my camel back ran dry so make sure you pace the water or get an extra large camel back!

I may do stupid things and make light of them but deep down there’s a reason and I love exploration, even if I cannot fully understand the outcome!
