Later this week I'm doing my latest challenge to raise money for charity. I was meant to be doing a 10k next month for Ty Hafan, but the event has been cancelled, and in all honesty I'm nowhere near fit enough to run 10k. So, when Ty Hafan announced they were doing a virtual challenge … Continue reading Virtual Welsh Three Peaks
This is a video I made at the start of the week which is about my 2.6 Challenge to raise money for the Big Issue Foundation (minimum donation is £2, which you can do here). I've since added a few more to the list of ones I've done (see below video). This video is a … Continue reading 2.6 Challenge vlog #2point6challenge
So, the 2.6 Challenge continues and today's was to write 26 haikus. I scribbled them on notes and on my phone and tweeted them throughout the day. I kinda liked doing it and it shows how my day went and a little stream of consciousness vibe to it. It's all to raise money for the … Continue reading 26 Haikus #2point6challenge
I set myself a lot of goals. I've got a Bucket List that I seem to add onto almost as quickly as I cross things off, and every year I set myself resolutions. I've always kinda considered the goals to be a good thing. I'm a pretty easygoing dude, and without setting myself something to … Continue reading Mental Health and Goals: Double Edged Sword
So, yesterday I completed my quarter marathon walk for Comic Relief. I woke up to driving rain and some really strong winds, so I was a little worried that I'd be soaked in my Unicorn Onesie. Ah, yes, I was doing the +7 miles walk dressed as a unicorn. When I started fundraising in February … Continue reading Unicorn Walking: My Quarter Marathon Walk
So, I know I've already written a blog about doing a 7 mile walk for Comic Relief , but I thought I'd write a little bit more about it here, and why I've chosen this distance to walk. Last year, I really started trying to walk more. I've found that it has really helped both … Continue reading Why a Quarter Marathon?
One of the items on my bucket list is to raise £1 million for charity. It's a big ask and so I'm approaching it as a long term goal that I'm slowly chipping away at. Last year, thanks to the Sport Relief walking challenges and the Children in Need Countryfile Ramble along with a few … Continue reading SPONSOR ME!!!: Quarter Marathon Walk
I can't remember when or why I downloaded this book onto my Kindle, but I'm glad I did, as Jamie McDonald's story of his epic run across Canada is a charming and inspiring tale. As a young child, Jamie was beset with serious health problems and at one point it was doubtful that he would … Continue reading Book Review: Adventureman by Jamie McDonald
Sorry to bother you, reader, but I'm taking part in Children in Need's Countryfile Ramble and I just wanted to ask if you could sponsor me. Children in Need is the BBC's charity that raises money for, well, the name kinda explains it all. The charity does great work helping thousands of disadvantaged kids all … Continue reading Sponsor me?
I haven't been able to hop on the scales the last couple of weeks, so I don't know exactly where I am weight wise. With no hard data I'm gonna have to guess how the month has gone. I think I've lost a fair bit this month thanks in part to all the extra walking … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: March Update: Mountains and Mirrors
