We made it 🎉🎉🎉
It was tough, but probably not as bad as I had feared, and all our joints held up (that was my biggest worry - knew I had the stamina, but didn't know if my knees, ankles and toes would support me in this rather crazy quest). We had fantastic weather - sun, but not too warm and a great breeze. And it was a stunning walk in terms of sea views, idyllic villages with country cottage gardens 🌸, pretty little churches, rivers, cliffs, rolling fields .....it had it all.
And we raised lots for the charity - cancer beat my Mum when she was far too young to go - anything that will help beat that disease has got to be a good cause.
So hear are a few reminders of the day - I got a medal 🥇
My new best friends:
Beachy head - this was after 23 miles, so we viewed that hill with some trepidation, having just climbed up, over, and down the seven sisters ( of which, by the way, I swear there were eight .....unless I was hallucinating )
