In memory of my husband Greg Kingston, I’m taking on the
Lands End to John O’Groats virtual challenge.
Over the coming months I will be walking and running my way virtually up
the country, covering 1,084 miles, with the aim of crossing the finishing line in
October on what would have been Greg’s 50th Birthday.
When my world was ripped from me in July 2020,
my mental health suffered immeasurably, so the services and support that Suffolk Mind provides are very close to my
Greg loved nothing more than going for a walk and
discovering new places. One of the last
films we watched together was Wild, chronicling one woman’s one thousand- and
one-hundred-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. Greg’s typical
reaction was to add hiking the Pyrenees to our bucket list. My response was to say couldn’t we
start with Lands End to John O’Groats first. So here I am Greg doing this for you, it
may be virtual, but everyone must start somewhere.
