We were running through hellish conditions for 4 hours @tough_mudder!! It was absolutely ❄ freezing! When ever you would dry off and just start to feel half human again, they'd be another water obstacle! 🌊We were all drenched from head to toe! 

I surprised myself yesterday, as I step out of my comfort zone and challenged myself in more ways than one. 

I feel on my arse! I kissed mud. I failed Everest the first time only to slide back down the ramp! #ouch. but I quickly picked myself & my pride, back up and did again! 

I am not the best swimmer, and don't like being underwater. The thought of going through 'Shawshanked'. A obstacle where you pull yourself through a dark tube and fall backwards, head first into six feet of muddy water. Honestly nearly gave me a panic attack! I held up the que because I couldn't do it, I tried to jump 3 times and froze. πŸ™ˆ 

I really almost didn't complete that one, but luckily I had @leebennett48 by my side.πŸ‘Š
I knew I had to make a choice; Give Up & Let My Fear Conquer Me. Or Conquer My Fear + Grow.

I just had to trust that it would be okay and just keep swimming to the top, thinking the worse is nearly over. I overcome that obstacle + overcame my fear. 😊
.
By the 9th Mile, Any where in your body that was done. Was DONE!!! In my case, my calfs were kept camping up, even walking hurt. Yet there was still more hills to run up + down + slide across! Despite being frozen for well over 3 hours, more water obstacles where insight! 

Really did take a lot of #determination and #willpower to complete that last mile! ❄ A R T I C E N E M A - Is NO JOKE. ❄ shock isn't even the word! Couldn't have wished for a better #team to race and cross the finish line with! @evolvefitlondon πŸ’― #warriors@scarlethollands
Looking like hell but I learnt the t-shirt!

Shit Son, I have just completed a FULL - TOUGH MUDDER!





28.04.18 - Event Day

When you been up since 04:30 am, filming from 6am, to then spend 4 hours running 10 miles + going through 24 obstacles. .
To finally SIT DOWN in the car, calfs burning, aching from head to toe, frozen + wet beyond belief. 
Thinking; Shit Son...I just completed a FULL TOUGH MUDDER!!!! @tough_mudder
I made it out in one piece, with only a "few" scratches and bruises! Hell Yeaaah! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜„

The only limits you have, are the ones you put on yourself.

ONE STEP CLOSER TO TOP SURGERY.











































Today I officially got my referral letter for #topsurgery. Which is a huge relief! 
#onestepcloser! Tomorrow I am running @tough_mudder and hopefully I  will raise some more funds to help me take the next big step in my transition & to relieve me of my chest dysphoria. 


Each day I am further into my journey and I love seeing myself grow into the person I have always been inside. It's becoming clearer now & finally being known proply on the outside. (I wouldn't go back or have any regrets about transitioning.Literally not one.) If anything I have gained so much from being able to be myself day in and day out.


I love being able to live as Cairo, every single day. I won't have any other way now. 
I AM TRANS AND I AM PROUD πŸ‘Š
.
My body has changed lots, each day I am more in line & I don't want to hide any more. I just want to be free. If you can help me in any way raise the funds I need, honestly it would mean the world to me. πŸ‘‰ www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/becomingcairo πŸ‘ˆ .
Hope you all have a beautiful weekend and tell your loved ones how much they mean to you! ❤ #lifeistooprecious #sharethelove. .

TRANS AND PROUD! πŸ’™πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’—πŸ’™ 
Today is Transgender Day of Visibility, two years ago to this day I went to my GP and came out as trans and was told two things. 

1) I was told its "trending" as in, I couldn't be transgender or the reason that I am is because its "a trend at the moment." again not something I would risk everything for, a trend. 

2) That people who transition aren't happier. 

Both of these statements were opinion based and not facts.  (I did expect more from that gp, and luckily I have dealt with much nicer GP's since.) 

I am 2 years into my transition & 1 year on testosterone and I can tell you: I am so proud of the journey I have been on these past few years, finally coming into my own, living authenticly and just more & more in-line everyday. 

I have grown so much and alot of that is on the inside. 
Life is what you make it. So allow yourself permission to #betrue. May you find the #courage to live a life that makes you happy. Because you my beautiful Trans brothers & sisters, πŸ’― deserve thatπŸ‘Š πŸ’™ Just Be Your Own Beautiful Self! πŸ’— 
#comingout as #transgender was honestly one of the most terrifying things I ever did, but also the most rewarding,  #itgetsbetter#itgetsbetterproject
