For 4 years, as part of my journey to a happier and healthier me, I have set myself challenges from running my first 10k in 2011 to running a trail marathon in 2014. These challenges have helped me lose over 8 stone (I was over 23stone)

This year I will by competing in a series of challenging events to raise funds for a charity. The charity I’m raising funds for is the Cardiomyopathy Association. Why? One of my 9 year-old son’s best friends, George, early last year was forced to give up on his coveted place with the Hull City FC Academy after being diagnosed with a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) as sufferers are not allowed to take part in strenuous exercise. The genetic condition is the biggest medical cause of sudden death in under-35s and often affects those who seem fit
and active.
