Love your body

The last few days have been a tough with a capital “T”. I’ve been unmotivated, unenthusiastic about most things that would have been biting at the bit, and lethargic. o instead of feeling bad that I don’t have enough internet to download re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy onto my laptop, I have created a list. It started as just listed reasons as to why I should love my body, but I soon realised that this is applicable to any person, of any gender, of any age.

Why take your kids camping?

I think it’s the chance to be a bit wild and feral, grubby and smelling of campfire, salty from a swim and not bothering to shower. The exposure to the weather and so much closer to nature – you’re just out in it and that tent and your snuggly sleeping bag give you just enough comfort to make it just fine.

My biggest adventure comrade is my dog, Maeko. He loves getting his hands (paws?) as dirty as I do.

We constantly have people tell us that we are lucky to have such a good dog, that we are lucky we can take him out with us. Maeko does have a good disposition, but it isn’t luck. We worked hard to teach him, he worked hard to please us, and we have all been rewarded by the effort

Had I known then what I know now - my top tips for getting into outdoor climbing

While the indoor gym plays an integral part to my training nothing compares to the immense satisfaction I feel when pulling on natural rock and hanging off a cliff edge outside. But like scores of other climbers before me my transition to the cliff began at the indoor gym. At first I didn’t even know where to begin learning and struggled to meet anyone willing to take me out. I didn’t get my first taste of real rock until about a year after I started climbing but I was instantly hooked.
