Home: Ellwood, Gloucestershire
I work as an Accountant and live in the Forest of Dean with my husband, 3 (mad) rescue dogs and 2 horses. I’ve just turned 50 and I’m (very) fat and frumpy. I used to be fit – I’ve even survived the London marathon – but that all seems a lifetime ago. I love the outdoors and I love the idea of being active but too often I let work and other commitments get in the way. I also developed severe asthma a few years ago and sometimes I get very scared by this. Recently I’ve become a bit of a quitter.
The Henley Swim and This Girl Can is about finding the old ‘me’ and my old inner strength. I am determined to complete this challenge and have some laughs along the way. I’m stupidly excited by this opportunity. (Just don’t expect a fast time from me!)
