a challenge

I was recently challenged by my friend Lisa at Hollybobb to take part in the Yorkshire 3 peak challenge.  I am not one for passing down such challenges especially when we are fund raising for a good cause, Alzheimer's Society.  

The fund raising and information pack arrived today along with the training schedule, the enormity of the challenge suddenly hit me.  I am going to climb the three largest peaks in the Yorkshire dales in one day, one after the other.  I also realised that I don't own any walking shoes let alone any walking equipment.  This is going to be interesting.

I am however also really looking forward to this challenge.  I am hoping this will give me the motivation I need to get fit and keep me focused a little more on doing all my exercises.  I can't wait to get started, though I think the first stop will be to the shops for some walking shoes.

If you would like to sponsor me [pretty please I would love it if you did] then please do so via Just Giving or click the Just giving button in the top right corner.  For more details on the challenge please read here .  I shall keep you posted how the training is going.  Oh and I am hoping for weather like in the photo below, fingers crossed.


This day I love a challenge
