Pace Walk for Marie Curie Cancer Care - Update

Well, I managed to complete the walk on Saturday, although it turned out to be nearer 28 miles than 25. We started from Leek at 7.20 in the morning and the first group came in around 6.30 that evening. 20 people managed the entire walk, one was lost to an ankle injury and 5 others were just plain lost. They actually got home first having missed out a chunk on the walk, but we forgave them.

We're still waiting for the totals to come in and I'll update the blog with the final number later. I'm just pleased to have managed the walk with only one minor blister and the usual aches and pains. Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far, and if you haven't, it's not too late.

The picture on the left shows me gasping for breath climbing a particularly steep slope at about 11am. If you know the area, this is just south of the A54, near the famous Cat & Fiddle pub west of Buxton.
