The 1000 Miles Mummy

I don't often find people who truly inspire me, and by that I mean literally make me get off my ass and get stuff done because these people are so amazing. Well, this year I have found one. The 1000 Miles Mummy is a woman who is walking 3 miles every single day of the year - yes every single day of the year with her toddler to raise money for the charity Tommy's. You can follow her journey every day, find out about her chosen charity and even donate to help her raise as much money as possible by clicking here.

I don't care who or what you are; whether you're a writer, artist, baker, it doesn't matter. If this woman doesn't inspire you then there's something wrong with you! It really does make me think if she can find time to do this amongst everything else including looking after a little girl then there is no reason at all that I can't do my things that I want to do such as get my writing done and lose a bit of weight.

I have a couple of friends who have been affected by what this charity supports and it really is just heart shattering to see a person, or a couple, or family, go through this pain and I will certainly be donating to this fabulous cause once my student loans come in - until then I'm poor! I would urge you to donate but of course you have a year to do so - take a look at her blog for a few days and I'm sure you will be supporting her, as I will be, throughout the rest of 2012.

I wish the best of luck to the 1000 Miles Mummy!
