Exercise and I have a rocky relationship. We’ve had the odd dalliance over the years which tend to peter out in mutual disinterest. With that blind optimism that accompanies a new relationship I signed up for Pretty Mudder, buoyed by the energy of a fabulous group of fellow school mums.
Unfortunately, due to my feeling rubbish and our busy schedules, exercise and I haven’t managed to meet over the summer.
Not one to shirk a challenge, on Sunday 8 September I’m giving it a go nonetheless:
- For my dad who was diagnosed mercifully early and survived relatively unscathed due to an amazingly unintrusive and effective treatment;
- For my dad-in-law who wasn’t so lucky and leaves a hole in our lives the size of his much-loved character; and
- For all my friends and family who are touched to varying degrees by this monstrous disease that nowadays leaves no-one unscathed.
