Laura's 1st challenge

Laura Paton is taking part in 17 events during 2017 to raise money for the Dementia Services Development Trust. Here is Laura's first update:

January has seen me attempt challenge number 1 of 17…5k a day for a month!

I struggled with the dark mornings, winter weather, and my fitness level being at zero, but I did it!

I either walked or ran 5k every day, with the help of Daisy the dog, and some friends and family. The support from everyone has been so encouraging. Most people think I am mad – but if anything, now I have Challenge 1 out the way I am so motivated to do the remaining 16!
