I have just got in after a lovely night with Helen and our friends. Unbeknown to me, Helen had asked our friends and parents to provide photos and messages so that she could make a giant good luck card! It was full of photos of all my favourite people and inside were some truly heartwarming messages! Chris had also written a fantastic poem for me and framed it! I feel so lucky to have such amazing friends!
I also had another surprise this afternoon. OTR had made me a good luck video! It was completely unexpected which made it all the more special and I am so grateful to them for taking the time and effort to put it together!
I am going away feeling very loved and supported and as a result of this, more motivated than ever to succeed in my Everest marathon challenge! I know it’s going to be incredibly tough, particularly leaving all my loved ones behind, but I am going to come back stronger than ever!
Now, I must get my beauty sleep before my big day tomorrow!
