Running has transformed my life, enabling me to grow in confidence, a feeling of self worth as well as giving me more energy to tackle the everyday things in my life. During my run across America I would like to try and inspire other people from all over the world to join me on my exciting journey across the USA, encouraging you to go on your own journey, set your own goals and achieve your own dreams by taking part in our global #MimiAndMeFor53 Fitness Challenge!

I’m delighted to be joining forces with Bafta award-winning filmmaker, Carol Cooke and her team at Scrumptious Productions (www.scrumptiousproductions.com) to launch the campaign and capture my journey across America. Like me, Carol has got big ambitions and is basically trying to change the world one film at a time! She’s going to be joining me this September and will be filming me every step of the way to keep you all updated on my progress and will also be creating a feature length documentary all about it.

As part of their crowd funding campaign, Carol and her team have created an amazing website #MimiAndMeFor53 (mimiandmefor53.co.uk ) which will enable you to join me virtually on my run across America and embark your very own 53 day fitness challenge to help keep me going when times get tough and help you discover how exercise can help transform your body, mind and life just like it has for me. In return for your invaluable support you’ll receive a range of exclusive content over the course of the 53 days – including your very own Healthy Eating and Exercise Guide brought to you by Scotland’s favourite fitness Guru, Kim Harkness, AKA The Fairy Bod Mother – along with a credit in the #MimiAndMeFor53 documentary and the opportunity to feature in the final film by submitting your very own footage as part of their weekly #FootageThursday challenges!

They’ve got 2850 individual “Mile Memberships” up for grabs along with 53 spots for Sports Clubs and Companies starting from just £25. I’m proud to report that 10% of all sales will be going directly to my chosen charity, Free to Run. So sign up today via link below or by visiting the website – mimiandmefor53.co.uk – and let’s get moving all together this September!
