In February 2014 my partner of almost seven years took his own life.
At the time people told me that I would not regain my own life for at least three years.
I was determined this would not be the case. My partner had introduced me to sport and adventure. We had travelled to wonderful and diverse places and taken part in many great events.
This blog is my story of coming back from the darkness of grief whilst honouring my late partners memory and spirit.
I decided to take on his planned challenge of cycling the Coast 2 Coast route in one day. With a great deal of love and support (and not a small amount of hard work and determination!) I completed this in August 2014.
My late partner will be with me every step of my life but now I also recognise my own strength and the need to take on challenges for myself and for my future.
