With less than 3 weeks until our challenge event, the nerves are really starting to set in.
We completed an unaffiliated 70 at Epworth recently, which went better than expected. Darcy was an absolute star! But I'm under no illusions - Frickley Park is going to be much tougher for us. The course is longer and the fences will be bigger and bolder.
We're focusing on fitness at the moment, as we both struggled a bit around Epworth and ended up with a lot of time penalties.
I have to keep reminding myself how far we have come since May this year. Before then, we'd never been anywhere other than to local events we could hack to.
We have raised just over £500 so far and in a bid to raise more funds, I have pledged to dye my hair to match my XC colours (blue) if we can get that total up higher!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
