On Saturday 20th July I completed the Three Peaks of North Yorkshire Challenge in 12 hours 35 minutes.
Fortunately the weather was kind to us after the recent heat wave, and it was cloudy and dull for most of the day.
The first peak Pen-Y-Ghent at 2272 feet was a challenge in itself, and I did start doubting my ability to do another one, never mind two.
However we tackled Whernside and then last but not least Ingleborough. By the time we reached the summit I didn’t think my poor tired legs could take and more and did wonder how on earth I was going to make it back to the car.
Many thanks to my husband Darren, son Tom, to our friends who accompanied us, and to everyone who sponsored us, it was the thought of all of them believing that I could do this, and the money I was raising for Ovacome ( almost 2000.00 to date) that kept me going. I also wore an Ovacome T shirt to hopefully raise awareness of OC.
