It has not been easy planning for a 100km trek in the Sahara in November.
In the beginning I buried my head in the sand (no pun intended) and not only was I not in the correct mindset to fundraise I wasn't even in the correct mindset to go outside.
Anxiety had properly taken hold.
When I found out in the group zoom call that some people had already reached their fundraising target I panicked and thought I needed to get cracking because I knew that the SUMMER is bonkers busy for Stamptastic so I had to get my act together.
Hundreds of cakes baked 🍰🧁
40 (and counting) Instagram One 2 One Sessions with Small Businesses 👨🏻💻👩🏼💻
The Lottertitty 🍈🍈
A fabulous raffle 🎉
And I am still going!
A few challenges dropped in by my fellow trekkers, 300,000 steps in June. Got me out of the house when it was really needed. The 14 day relay in July was so much fun and I can't wait to see if we won. Competitive moi?
So far have done a 17 mile hike in Richmond Park, a beautiful 4 hour walk in Hackwood Park and I went crazy and walked up Pen Y Fan in the beautiful Brecon Beacons. I wouldn't have done any of this without CoppaFeel! and I am truly grateful for the distraction both the fundraising and training has provided.
Thank you to EVERYONE for their kind words of encouragement, sponsorship, buying a cake or a ticket, doing an Instagram One 2 One with me or donating a prize!
Thank you so much to fellow trekker Claire for making the video!
