Hi everyone. I changed my socks for the first time this morning which was so nice. There was poor visibility all day today. It was a whiteout and you cant see anything around you but white. Somebody else said it was like travelling in a marshmallow which I think was a good way of explaining it. So I end up skiing a lot slower because I cant see where the Sastrugi is and they can get pretty big. I also end up staring a lot harder at my compass just to make sure I’m going in the right direction. I still got good mileage in and still feeling good.
The post goes out to the British Army which has been a big part of my life, I joined the Reserves as a private when I was 19 with minimal education at the time, went onto become a physiotherapist and joined the Regular Army about 6 years ago. I had never been camping before I joined so my first weekend in the field was quite the experience!
I want to say thank you to everyone that saw potential in me and encouraged me along the way. A shout out to 222 Medical Squadron which was my Reserve Unit for about 7 years, 3 Medical Regiment, London PCRF (physio department) and my fellow sisters in the Army, serving and retired for your ongoing support.
And a special thank you to my chain of command, Brig Lizzie Faithfull-Davies and Lt Col Gareth Hattersley.
Thankyou so much all of you. That’s all for tonight.
