So what did that workshop tell me? Among other things…………………..
Get out of your comfort zone – I’m planning a fire-walk on 6th October at David Lloyd, Westbury, Bristol -yes, it does what it says on the tin. I, with a gang of other people, will be walking across hot coals and raising £3000 for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, who hold all funds raised in darren’s name and are doing research into the cancer which affected him.
Learn to believe in yourself to make things happen – I wanted to do it and the only way I could see was to organise an event myself. A professional company will be doing it – I’m not just lighting a big barbecue and sending people over it!
The right support team – it’s a lot to organise by yourself. Big thanks to the team at David Lloyd who’ve offered help in various ways (and several have signed up for the walk) and a friend has offered to organise a “hot” themed lucky dip. I wanted a bran tub so we’re wondering about calling it a hot tub!
Kim and many of Team Energised keep me going: several have signed up already to walk but the more the merrier (and we should be very merry!) If you’d like to join us you can contact me through Facebook or via Kim or sponsor me on uk.virginmoneygiving.com/…/
And for those who don’t know me, just in case anyone thinks I’m a daring young person who’s done sporty things all her life, I’ll just add that I’m 63 and all my school reports said how quiet and shy I was. I don’t think I had much in the way of comments for PE because I was usually hiding in the toilets.
So…….out of my comfort Zone…………….. you bet!
