This month marks a year since @hannahrenshall started training again @depotmanchester after a 10 year fight against anorexia.
“Coming out of hospital, moving back to Manchester and returning to climbing was terrifying. I had to set myself challenges each visit - like to wear something that showed a part of my body I hated or talk to someone new. But now not only have I gained and maintained a healthy weight for six months, but I’ve also got the best and supportive friends I could’ve wished for. Climbing (and mountain biking) are the only parts of my day where I can value my body for what it can do, not what it looks like. I still struggle with anxiety every time I come but now I can’t wait to support others in their recovery with #climbtothrive and maybe introduce the #mindfulness of #tradclimbing to them too”
