Melanie climbs lots of mountains in 24 hours
Myself and two dear friends will be attempting the national three peaks challenge - climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon in just twenty four hours.
I chose to support Brake because they do a fantastic job at supporting those who have been affected by road accidents, as well as trying to make the roads safer for everyone. My partner died on the road last year, and I want to make sure as few people as possible have to go through this nightmare, and to ensure there's support for those who do.
Before taking on this challenge I'd never climbed a mountain. I've spent a weekend in the Lake District training, and can now say I've got some experience, but it's certainly going to be a huge challenge. I've been training hard for months now, and am quite looking forward to not being in a constant state of aching.
