First post in a few days but a lot has been happening behind the scenes!
My new boots have arrived and been tried out, together with a old rucksack. Just a bit more wearing in to do. Ordered a Cape (vermilion in colour!) that covers the rucksack and to make me feel really old I’m waiting the arrival of my seniors railcard! Happy days though-a bit like being a student I can now get 30% off train fares 🥳 And all the accommodation is booked 😊 In a fortnight I will be walking.
The virtual Great North Run is now only 4 weeks away. Did a 14 mile training run yesterday so I know I can do the distance. Got totally soaked but nice it was cooler 🏃♂️ Tried my new Garmin watch too.
Thanks for your interest and support. There are many around the world-in concentration camps in North Korea; shipping containers in Eritrea and prisons in Iran who would love my freedom to walk, run and worship. It is a privilege to support and stand alongside them. When everything seems a bit daunting, which it does at times, it’s good to think of this bigger picture..
