Incredibly, I managed to complete the entire 11.5 mile course on Saturday, completing every obstacle (apart form the Funky Monkey bars, that apparently 60% of people fail!) What’s more incredible is that of those 11.5 miles I ran at least 10 of them!!! (The furthest I’ve EVER run before is 6 miles!) Though, I did run SLOOOOOOWLY at points 🙂
In truth, however, I only completed the course because of the support and encouragement of the guys with me. James Richards, Nathan Davies and Andrew Gwyn were solid friends and invaluable getting me to the finish line. Of the 20 obstacles there were 3 that I physically couldn’t have completed were it not for the boys dragging, pushing and pulling me over. I’m going to post more about that in a few days.
For now, I am glad to rest my smashed up ankles, reflect on one of the most exhilarating and inspiring days of my life and celebrate the grace of God in helping me to raise over £1,200 for Open Doors.
Here’s some of the photos of the day courtesy of my good friend Mr Caleb Jones:
