    Story

    On Saturday 19th August I will be running 100 miles in Leadville, Colorado. The starting elevation is 10,000 ft. and we climb to 14,000 ft. twice over the course of the 30 hour race. I am calling this challenge 'Helen's Hundred' and will be raising money for premature baby care (NICU units) in the UK & US. This is a cause which is close to my heart as a twin mom. If this is a cause which speaks to you, please donate and add the name of a baby you know who has benefited from the amazing care the NICU units can provide. Thank you in advance

      Hi all, Thank you so much for the generous donation... I feel like I should give half back, having only done half the distance yesterday. I got to 12,000+ feet and had a pretty severe bout of altitude sickness. I got back on my feet and ran down the other side of the mountain to the 50 mile point. I made the cut off,, but unfortunately did not have a head torch or enough warm clothes to risk going back up and over. It was a really difficult decision to leave the race at that point, but I had to put safety first. Thank you for supporting me.
