Did it: London Winter Charity Walk. 26 Miles (42 Kilometres) 8 hours 25 minutes


Finished. 26 miles (42 kilometres) 8 hours 25 mins. Very sore feet and legs, but it's been a great day. Raised money for a good cause (St Mungo's Homeless charity) , improved my fitness a bit and it has reminded me what a beautiful city I live in.

Started at the Oval Cricket club 10am, walked along south bank towards Rotherhithe, back to Tower Bridge, crossed to north of Thames and walked west until Vauxhall Bridge. Had lunch at Oval then walked west along south of Thames and then crossed Putney Bridge. Walked East alongside Thames (in darkness) until Vauxhall then back to Oval for 6.25pm.

Listening to music and podcasts took my mind off the aches and pain.

Over 30 of my colleagues from Clarion took part and also 2 Newham Councillors, Cllr Kamali and Cllr Chadha.

Many thanks to staff from the organisers for looking after us so well.

Will I do next year? Maybe, but see how much pain I will be in tomorrow and the next few days. I will post more photos on Facebook.

You can still sponsor me. Many thanks for all those who have donated so far.
