My Long Walk

Sunday 15 February was a day I'd been dreading ever since late November, when a very unfit me - fuelled by a couple of wines - agreed to take part in a half-marathon with my friend Michelle.

Thanks to Michelle's great training schedule and unflinching encouragement (pays to be mates with a school teacher!), we walked the 21.4 course in a credible time of 3h13m - and took away spot prizes for our efforts too!

The trick now is to keep up the fitness - anyone up for a half-marathon in a couple of months?!
