This year I’ve has been stepping up towards better mental health by taking on the 10000 steps a day challenge. Experiences not things. Blisters not boredom. Its been a massive change for me and one that living with BPD can make a little, well, lets just say interesting to say the least. Depression and the symptoms of BPD can often make you feel like you are battling through concrete just by getting out of bed in the morning so walking 10000 steps has been, as Salt’n’Pepper would put it, a chance to push it.
And so all this activity got me thinking. Why not make the most out of my new found love of putting one foot in front of another? So on Friday 24th March I’ll be walking from Rottingdean’s White Horse Hotel to The Big Beach Cafe at Hove Lagoon and, deep breath, back again for Comic Relief. Dressed in suitably Red Nose-d clothing. Shaking my collection tin. Accompanied by my Queen. With a stop off at The Tempest Inn for refreshments and a PE kit spruce up. Okay walking 12.8 miles may not seem a lot to many of you marathon addicted beauties out there but to me its a big step. So any pennies or pounds you have going spare please do donate today and help me fundraise to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and across Africa.
Our Comic Relief walk will start at 9.30am at The White Horse Hotel, Rottingdean and we aim to be at The Tempest Inn, 159-161 Kings Road Arches at 11am* (outbound) / 1.30pm* (return) and the Big Beach Cafe, Hove Lagoon Kingsway 12pm* with our collecting bucket. Come join us with your donations / laughs.
*Arrivals / departures are approximate based on weather, blisters, gossiping, wind factor and Queenie’s mincing times.
