Well, not really. After walking 26.2 miles, I think 500 would kill me! (Also you would think those 0.2 miles wouldn’t matter but they so did towards the end!) So I survived the Edinburgh Moonwalk (check out the pic of the pink castle!) and just wanted to say how proud I am of myself and my friends, Jo, Fi and Lou, for making it over the finish line – it was a bit touch and go at one or two points!
I can honestly say I’d totally underestimated how hard it would be to walk a marathon with no sleep – by mile 24 I was totally struggling to stay awake, which is pretty odd when you’re still walking at the same time! But with the help of Kendal Mint Cake, some pink wigs, a very random game of eye spy and singing a few Jungle Book songs (it’s amazing what your brain thinks of when you’re that exhausted!) we all made it – and without a blister between us.
And this is me in my fetching pink wig (which around mile 11 I was saying I might wear to go see Take That – perhaps proof that I was losing it already!).
Anyway, hope you all had good weekends (yes I know it’s Monday already but I’m still catching up!).
I can honestly say that was the strangest weekend I’ve had in some time… a marathon walk followed by a Take That gig – amazing but think it’ll be a long time before I repeat such a thing!!
