A Walk To Remember

The title of this post does not refer to the soppy Mandy Moore movie. If you were looking for that, I am sorry to disappoint.

Instead, I am talking about the Shine Walk : Half Marathon I did at the weekend. Along with some family and friends, we walked 13.1 miles around London town, starting and ending at Battersea Power Station, whilst taking in some of London's iconic sights along the way.

I think I got all caught up in Olympic fever and the (dis)illusion of being an athlete when I signed up and subsequently roped everyone into doing this walk.

After 'training' for about 6 weeks (i.e. walking to work and occasionally back home again) we undertook the epic walk and finished in 4 hours and 26 minutes.

I must say even though my right knee is currently throbbing, I'm glad I did it, especially in support of such a great cause - Cancer Research.

Would I do it again next year? Probably. Even though the Three Peaks Challenge has also been bandied about as an idea. Hmmmm.

For our walking efforts, we've raised over £700 (wooo hoo and thank you!). I know you don't know me, but if you want to donate you still can  -

P.S Did I mention our walking team name was: THE MIGHTY WALKING POWER RANGERS. Geddit? (Don't worry we left our weapons at home).
