A letter to all my Fit Birds...
Life has a tendency of changing its path without warning.
I couldn't have predicted the path I am now on.
Life was great, but not for my daughter, she was at the top of her game, with so much ahead of her
A Snowboarder for Team GB, winning an Olympic bronze medal, sponsors were biting at her heels, and everyone wanted a piece of her
Ellie did not see her talent and beauty and put tremendous pressure on herself, this got the better of her and her actions changed my life for ever.
I now have to live my life without my daughter, only with her in my heart
She said to me "mum you can do anything you want too" so I have taken her advice
The reason I wanted to share my story is that do not judge a book by its cover, we all have our journeys that are so important to us
Fitness and exercise has always played a major part of my journey, helping me get through the most challenging times in my life. It has also brought me great happiness and purpose, helping shape me into the person I am now.
The Ellie Soutter Foundation was set up in Ellie's memory to help young struggling athletes with their mental health and financing their sport. #itsoknottobeok
