Yep, we did it! This is my friend Lesley and I having completed the Free Radio's Walk for kids on Sunday 2nd June 2013. It was supposed to be a 13.1 mile walk but according to my pedometer I walked just over 17.5miles before I got home and we suspect at least 17 miles of that was on the actual route! I have to say I'm thoroughly thrilled I managed to make it all the way to the end, there was one point where I thought I was going to pass out and had to sit with my head between my legs for several minutes and Lesley admitted to me later on she would have had no idea what to do as both of our phones had run out of battery by that point! (Note to self, need to buy emergency charger doodad if I ever consider a long event again!) But I didn't pass out or throw up and we made it to the end. The picture above is the official one taken by the photographer and as you can see there's not too many people left around by this stage as we did take quite a long time to do it, but at the end of the day we did it so I don't care!
On an even better note - went to Slimming World last night, finally got given my 3 stone award which I achieved a few weeks ago and lost 4.5lbs! Hoping thats me back on the right track to losing weight now
