Yes!!!! I did it. I actually walked on hot coals for charity on 18th May. Thanks to The Rotary club Saughall branch for allowing this to be possible. Please don't try this at home.......we all had extensive training beforehand.
It was a huge personal goal for me to achieve mind over matter. I have suffered many years with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia and I wanted to highlight that anyone can eventually overcome their challenges and difficulties with the right preparation and support.
As for the walk itself.......it was rather like walking on hot beach sand but a little more 'spikey' as some of the wood cinders had not quite burned down yet. After my feet had a good hosing down afterwards I found that I barely had a mark on my feet.
I would definitely do this again given the chance. It definitely changes you and makes you feel like you can achieve anything.
