Walkin' At Night

Well, it might not be an Olympic Gold, - but I'm still quite proud!

Gina and I finished our ten mile Starlight Walk last night in the not-too-shabby time of two and three quarter hours.  Although we'd put ourselves down as 'medium speed walkers' we sneaked in behind the fast walkers and we still managed to overtake quite a few of them. Consequently, we weren't too far back from the front when we finished, and as we neared the end of the walk, we were already talking about taking part again next year.
Not bad for two old birds, eh?

I'd like to say thanks very much to Gina for her company, to all the men who kindly volunteered to marshall the route, and especially to all those generous people who sponsored me, it's very much appreciated.  If you didn't get around to donating, you can still do so here -

And, as a bonus - over 22,000 steps.  Which presumably means I can eat my body weight in sweets today with a clear conscience.

Walkin' At Night - Boston


  1. Two old birds... you speak for yourself!!!!
    I think we both did really well and I'm really pleased you decided to do the walk. They felt like gold medals.

  2. Congratulations to the pair of you - spring chickens!!
