A Flimby woman may be too tired to celebrate her 40th birthday later this year after completing 40 sporting challenges.
Bev Faulder, 39, of Fothergill, decided she wanted to do something different for her landmark birthday in October by raising cash for charity.
She has chosen Jigsaw, the Cumbrian children’s hospice, and began her 40 challenges when she hit 39.
A fitness instructor at the Fit 4 Life community gym in Maryport, she wants to raise £1,000 for the children’s hospice.
She has completed marathons and half marathons, cycled, climbed and swum.
She added: “I am doing the Cleveland Half Ironman in July and that is a bit of a worry. I have to swim just over a mile, bike 58 miles and run 13.1 miles.
“It is the swimming that worries me most as it is probably my weakest event.”
Bev, who has two sons in Connor, 14, and Harrison, four, said she did not get much time to train but was hoping for the best.
