Congratulations. You should be very proud of yourself. That is a huge effort.  How long did it take you to get over the soreness and blisters, or were you tougher than you thought? Are you signing up for next year! Jan

Did it!!!!!

Hi Jan,thankyou. I surprised myself that I'm not still sore!Could hardly move on Monday but I got up and walked the clampett's at 6.30 yesterday and today(very slowly!).Not one single blister!Amazing when you think I only got my shoes last Wednesday...Ellie decided to add her own design to my ones I was going to wear! At this stage I am going to do it next year,planning on trying to run it.next challenge I've set myself.Probably fooling myself but this time last year I wouldn't have given myself much chance of walking it. Again,thanks for the support,Margaret

Thanks Helen, I don't think the photo is a good idea,thinking of putting it on the front door with a sign saying "this is the person inside",better than a burglar alarm!!! My next fundraising idea is a lot less physical! Margaret
