R̶u̶n̶n̶i̶n̶g̶ Walking A Half Marathon!👀

Well, today I’ve gone and done something I didn’t think I’d be doing in a hurry…

My friends, the Tootie Frooties (remember them, featured here, here, and here ) and I decided we’d like to do a bit of fundraising, and seven of us have only gone and signed up for the Cancer Research UK Shine Walk in London on September 22nd!

It’s a walk through Central London at night!

There was the option of a full marathon, but I’m afraid none of us felt up to that much walking, no matter how wonderful the company!

But after chatting about it, we finally did it. Signed up, paid our fees and set up our fundraising pages too!

I am quite excited. Walking together, for 13.1 miles (eek!) at night will be amazing! Lots of opportunities for silly selfies and the camaraderie of a night like this is always phenomenal!

The Route

A couple of us did a Race For Life in Hyde Park, London, which was five miles, with our kids 8 years ago, so there may be feelings of Deja Vu, but we are all older and will have no minors with us this time!

    I think it will be magic, walking ( or are you going to run? ) round London, especially at night is magic, add to that chatting along the way and you won’t notice the distance. My friend for several years organised a pink promenade, there and back along the seafront – 14-16 miles, we were never quite sure, but we did stop for coffee, lunch and tea break along the way and took all day!
