Renu's three peak training...
With the Laughing Dog team taking part in the Three Peak Challenge in just over one month, training is really getting under way. Renu, our Marketing Executive, explains what her intense 'Three Peak Training' has involved so far, which started with a taster by climbing Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales....
Firstly, tell us a little bit about yourself. What’s your role at Laughing Dog?
Here at the bakery I look after our website and customer service. I spend most of my time making your Laughing Dog experience easy and to a high standard. If you use our Live Chat facility often it will be myself that you talk to!
What inspired you to take on the Three Peak Challenge?
Raising awareness and money for a great cause is the main reason but also it will be a personal challenge to see how fit I actually am. It will be difficult but at the same time I am excited and very determined to complete the challenge.
Why the Guide Dogs?
It is an amazing cause in terms of what they do and the work they put in to train the puppies. It is also incredible to see the effects the dogs have on people’s lives.
Have you ever done a challenge like this before?
No I haven’t. I’ve never actually thought about doing a challenge like this so it is totally out of my comfort zone but I am looking forward to it.
Do you think you’ll ever do one again?
Completing the Three Peak Challenge is enough to tick off from the bucket list!
How are you preparing for the walk?
Since signing up to the event I have joined the gym and I am now going three times a week and even occasionally at the weekend! Last week I climbed Ingleborough in the wind and rain with the rest of the Laughing Dog team - that certainly was eventful!
What are you looking forward to the most?
The views at the top are going to be worth every second.
Is there anything you’re not looking forward to?
We are self-funding the event so we are on a strict budget. Sharing a room with my colleagues is not something I am overly excited about. I will miss my own bed!
