I posted a couple of pics earlier in the week, but was testing out sending them from my mobile phone straight to my blog, so didn’t put much of a write up with them as it was a bit of an experiment, which seems to work quite well actually!
The weather on Sunday before and during the walk was absolutely awful, we had some torrential rain and it was blowing a gale so the walk along the prom was quite blustery. In between the showers though the sun came out and it was really quite warm, but we were all soaked to the skin quite a few times. We finished the 5k walk in 1 hour 15 mins, not a bad time considering the weather and the fact that certain parts of the prom were so flooded that we had to walk in single file quite a lot, which meant quite a slow pace considering how many people were taking part in the walk. Next year we are all going to train a lot harder and a few of us are hoping to run the 5k.
For Maggie – I am not in the picture (I really don’t like having my photo taken) they are my work colleagues Jan and Rose, but one of my other colleagues took more photos and once she has loaded them into Facebook I will pinch a few and post them here. I know there is at least one of me in amongst them LOL
I’d like to say a huge thank you to Claire and the two Sheila’s for your very generous donations. I managed to raise £80 altogether and between the six of us who walked we hope to get close on £500.
