Bristol Sunwalk 2008

Sunday was charity walk day for me, and this means that yesterday and today have been 'can't walk because it hurts too much' days. My colleagues and I walked a half marathon in 2:59:57. Yes, that's 13.2 miles in (just) under 3 hours! I can tell you that I didn't know I could walk that fast, or that far. Crikey, I hadn't appreciated what I was letting myself in for.

Anyway, it was a lovely day and all in aid of walk the walk, the breast cancer awareness charity. You have to walk in your bra and decorate it yourself, so here is a pic of the bra. I was pretty pleased actually. It was a very last minute effort and it was the first time I had dropped the feed dog on my sewing machine, so I was learning too!

Ouch. I think I need to soak in a hot bath.

Thanks dottycookie. Is that the walking fast bit or the dropping the feed dog bit?!
