She will be taking part in the Great North SwimRun – a 12km cross-country course alternating running around and swimming through Lake Windermere. (And the weather forecast is currently "heavy rain and strong, gusting winds"...)
“This is the first time I have ever attempted anything like this. As a teacher I constantly tell young people that they learn from pushing themselves out of their comfort zones.... I’m practising what I preach and I’m so scared. What will I learn?”
She would be very grateful for any donations to help spur her on her way as she “tries to make a small difference to a wonderful youth centre with tremendous young people and staff at its heart”.
