Until next year...

Well, today is my last full day in England for almost a year. I am actually off to China tomorrow as a sandwich year for my chinese studies degree course.
I must say, it has come round so fast. I only just got my visa yesterday, and i am completely not in the mindset that i am leaving, its just dawning on me. However i am really looking forward to it and have lots of plans for while i am out there, so i will definately be kept busy enough.
Just want to say to everyone, i am really going to miss you all, and its been a really great summer for me and just another massive thanks to all those who supported the crawl, big plans for the future with New Foundations that you will be kept posted on.
Be sure to keep checking back here for updates from China, i'll let you know whats cracking with the parkour scene and how training is out there, as well as all the travelling.

Take care everyone, see you next year,

God bless


Crawl Review - 11/08/07

Sorry for the lateness of this post, I havent had much time or access recently so it had to wait.
Well, on the saturday of the 11th, it was the day of the crawl. I moved it forward because more people were available to help get money out of the public, and there was more public to get money out of also.
First of all, it was probably the physically hardest thing I have done, which just shows I need to be pushing myself more everywhere else. I started at around 11:20am and finished at about 4:30pm.
I didnt manage to finish the entire 4 miles unfortunately because I was feeling extremely worn down and during the last 20 minutes began to throw up a fair amount and started to find it extremely hard to stay down and crawl from nausea and my head throbbing. I am fairly happy with the distance I did do however which was about 3.6 miles, and I did go as far as I have ever gone physically and mentally, I almost felt like crying toward the end. We managed to raise a really suprising amount of money on the day, amounting to £475.46. Overall more than £2,500 has been donated to New Foundations.
Here is a map of the route, the red line is what I crawled, and the blue line shows the last part which I didn't do:
Also, here is a short video of the day. Unfortunately my last 30 mins of agony were not captured so you cant see me in my personal hell haha.

Thanks so much to everyone who supported me and donated money. I appreciate everyone's generosity so much and am glad with the positivity which has come out of all this, thanks so much everyone.


Crawl Moved.....

....to the 11th. Very late notice but have had little computer access recently. Will post how it goes and whether i finish alive.
Wish me luck for tomorrow everyone!


Trace 2007

Not going to say a great deal about this except thanks very much from myself and my Dad to everyone who donated money. All in all it came to £581.76, all raised in just one evening. I'm really happy about this and extremely appreciative to you all, and there were some particularly generous donations from some people so i really want to thank all those who gave once again.
I hope the New Foundations presentation/video shed some more light on what the money is going toward, and there are some great plans for the future out there.

Regarding the actual event, it was extremely successful and i think pretty much all the credit needs to go firstly to Jason for being the one to begin all this, and also to Dave for just organizing so much and knowing the area we all enjoyed so much.

It was a really great week and I am just sad it is over so fast, it was great to spend more time with those who i feel i want to see more. I definately feel like i have a better friendship with all the Trace reps and just the people who came in general. Overall it was a really great time for meeting my friends and making new ones and I think everyone benefited in many ways from the entire experience. Definately a go-er for next year I believe. Thanks to everyone who came, who donated, and who made it what it was.
