In September 2019 I had an awesome adventure

Swim Bike Climb

Sea to Summit Extreme

21 Miles (33.8 km) as the crow flies

I swam the English Channel

550 Miles (880 km) over 3 days

... then cycled from Calais to Chamonix

the tallest mountain in Western Europe at 4807 Meters above sea level

... and finished by climbing Mont Blanc

WHO AM I AND WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

I’m a passionate sports person who loves adventure and physically and mentally demanding events.

I am Andrea, a passionate sports person with an extreme sense of adventure. I am a proud dreamer, always thinking about crazy things I would like to achieve. I love pushing my physical and mental boundaries – it is here that I truly find out who I am and what I am capable of. My philosophy is ‘create your own epic. I believe in being the best you can be and not comparing yourself to others.

In September 2019, I set out to achieve what most believed was an impossible challenge; swimming 34km across the English Channel, Cycling 900km across France and then climbing Mt Blanc – all in just 5 days. Defying all odds, I successfully completed the challenge in 4 days 20 hours. I believed in myself and created my own epic!

By continuing to share my own personal journey I hope to educate young women and help remove the taboo surrounding women’s health problems.

To the outside world, it would appear that I have a pretty cool life and have been successful. They wouldn’t be wrong, but what people don’t see are the hurdles and daily challenges I have often faced along the way. From a very young age I have had many gynaecological (aka ‘lady’) problems. I have suffered from Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, multiple fibroids and more recently found out that I had early stage Cervical Cancer – all of which culminated in me having a full abdominal Hysterectomy at the age of 35.

Endometriosis is a debilitating condition that affects 1 in 10 women in the UK, yet many people have never heard of it. Cervical Cancer can be detected and often prevented with a smear test, yet 1 out of 5 women do not attend their cervical screening. This is scary reading, but reality is, I was one of these people!
