It's an event called Tough Mudder
And is basically a run through lots of mud with some electric shock wires, tear gas, fire and ice thrown in at regular intervals
And when we started on the line the nerves were kicking it!
It's safe to say the girls were scared
There was a smell in the air that wasn't the countryside!
But the main thing is they faced their fears and ran it
And they actually enjoyed it
^^^We also raised some cash for our chosen charity the Super Josh Brain Tumour Charity
If you remember my email yesterday
It was about doing things daily and weekly to achieve a distant goal
That's what we had yesterday
If I had a pound for everytime I said "each step forward is one step closer to finishing" I'd have about £20
But that's what we focused on!
But along the way were the scary obstacles
The worst by far was the electric shock wires at the end!
They made us stop and almost curtailed our run!
But with an extra push we got through
I got a 10,000V shock to the stomach!
The girls got zapped too
And so will you!
You will have stumbling blocks on the way
The path to success is never straight forward
One of the biggest reasons was we worked as a team
We were there to support and push each other through the tough times!
Who will be there to support you when things get tough on your journey?
Are the people around you going to support you in success or drive you to failure?
The picture below is one of my favourite sayings
Do you want to go fast or far?
