I returned home last week from kilimanjaro. The country is amazing as well as the people. I feel so very lucky to have had the amazing opportunity. In terms of how it went i worked so hard in preparation for going to the mountain raised £4000 for help for heroes charity. I never struggled fitness wise I wasn't sore or out of breath i took it slow and was determined. I was however struck with altitude and ended up with cerebral edema and was 1000 metres from the top but I was also 30 mins from possible death. When I returned to Scotland i was later admitted to hospital with a suspected clot on the brain. I am now out of hospital feeling much better and looking at my next challenge. I had the most life changing experience for good reasons and for bad.

Firstly glad that you are ok. Well done on raising the money for such a great cause.
Shame it didn't go quite to plan.
What's the next challenge?
