So here it is then, tomorrow we’ll be setting off for Scotland… man this has come along quickly. Tomorrow morning we’ll be driving up to Glasgow to stay over night prior to starting the Three Peaks Challenge. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a decent nights sleep before setting off for Ben Nevis Saturday morning. We hope to start the challenge at about 4pm Saturday afternoon with the weather not looking too bad at the moment.
Training has been tough the last couple of weeks especially with this ridiculous heat and humidity. Fortunately myself and Nick were able to get out for a long walk one evening just outside of Hatfield. Neither of us realised that you don’t have to walk far before you hit some pretty amazing countryside.
Unfortunately Nick has suffered a slight groin strain from training but we’re hoping and praying that this will resolve just in time…
Last week I also took the time to buy myself some new walking boots. When I had a look at my poor excuse for some walking boots, I knew this was a good excuse to get a new pair. Hopefully they should keep my feet and ankles fairly comfortable… although I don’t think any amount of specialist equipment is going to prepare our bodies for the challenge that stares us in the face. The morning after the challenge could be an interesting one.
We would all like to thank the people who have already sponsored us, both on the justgiving page and sponsorship forms. It’s going towards a great cause and any donation no matter how big or small is hugely appreciated. Not far from that £30,000 target now. Things like this really do draw people together and it’s been amazing to see the love and support of so many towards Colin and the work that the Headcase Cancer Trust is doing. Rest in peace mate, we hope we can do you proud this weekend.
