My name is Lucy Giles, and I'm a serving Army officer, happily married to Nick and with two awesome children who keep me grounded!
Taking part in the Marathon des Sables is something that has always been on my bucket list and so when the opportunity to go on this amazing adventure came up, I jumped at the chance! Notwithstanding the normal aches and pains at turning 50 years, compounded by 27 years of rucksacs, boot runs and a general 'I'll just grize it' attitude, I am determined to complete the 250km with my body in tact and a positive mental attitude. I am blessed to be doing this alongside the men and women of Walking with the Wounded; a fantastic charity and one that will inspire me every day as, to be honest, even this far out the challenge is daunting.
So, if you want to help both me and this fantastic organisation, then please sponsor us. Every little helps, as they say, and I am extremely grateful in advance for your consideration.
