I did my Sports Relief 10k in my bedroom!

The team honk relay was coming my way…..

Penny and co. were cycling the baton 30 miles into Nottingham. Jen , Amanda Emily and Louise were walking it 20 miles to Derby the next day. I couldn’t join them

When team honk bought their baton relay for sports relief to Nottingham I felt pretty useless. . At Christmas I had experienced some major health issues that have left me needing to use a ventilator and with very restricted mobility. I knew I couldn’t do my part.

But I was wrong……………………there is always a way isn’t there?

My dear friend Helen suggested I cycle with the baton  with my ventilator on. Now my ventilator is about the size of a microwave and just a s heavy and needs to be plugged in so my miles would have to be on the exercise bike, but still, what a great idea.

So I did it. I cycled 10k on my exercise bike, ventilator on and Mr B the baton proudly in my hand.

I did it in 22 minutes and was EXHAUSTED but proud.

More importantly I was sponsored by lots of lovely family and friends who  have been cheering me on ever since I got ill. Bless them

I have learnt sport really is for all no matter what our physical challenges are: creativity, support, encouragement  and inclusion are essential.

Sports Relief raises money for people in need all over the world and supports amazing projects like food banks and providing shelter and fresh water for those in need

Please do consider sponsoring the team honk relay if you haven’t already

Well done Tanya, Annie and Penny for all you hard work in organising it and really well done everyone who took part and of course THANK you to everyone who donated. )

Sport is the theme of this weeks….

    Your leg of the relay was such an incredible achievement Becky. I was so in awe of how you completed the challenge no matter what. You are so positive and got on with it despite your illness. That deserves huge support and admiration and it is wonderful that you have been able to be a part of the amazing Team Honk. xx

    You are amazing for doing that and I could not believe that you would even attempt it. 10k is a long way as I will find out again on 18th may when I run it and to do so whilst ill and needing a ventilator is just an amazing achievement
