The Orange Headband

Two weeks ago I took part in Tough Mudder Scotland in support of Scottish Spina Bifida Association. I managed to raise £115 for them which is incredible, and I earned my headband! Yey! I hobbled clambered and carefully climbed my way around the course, completed all the obstacles except 2 (although it did take a lot of assistance and encouragement from the staff and my team <3) The staff were fantastic and helped a little with movement when it got a bit tough and extra water. I cannot thank them enough – they were terrific!

James was fantastic support as always I wouldn’t have signed up or crossed the finish line.

Without further ado, here are a few photos of us getting muddy.

We just might need a lie down after.

It took me a while to recover – I still am in bits of me. But that orange headband is mine and boy did I earn it.
