Hi everyone,

 

This is the 3rd installment of my blog. Just a quick update to show you how we are getting on. I have been running five times

What is a Munro marathon?

9 February 2016, 12:00 am

What is a Munro Marathon? Well, it is at least a marathon (26) of Scottish mountains above 3000 feet, in 3 weeks.

Why would I do something this crazy? To help raise funds for the charity God Unlimited - specifically the solar panel project. If we hit the fundraising Target (£3000) then we can match fund the amount to achieve the total we need of £9000! But, this is also for me. Too long spent at home studying and not enough time out there, in creation, spending time just ... being (and walking of course!) When is it happening? I will depart on 10th July 2016........ And return 3 weeks later. What happens in the meantime? At the moment, I am training and improving my fitness by running 5 times per week. Closer to the time, I will start carrying a 20kg rucksack around on dog walks to try and get fitter for that. I need to buy more kit and plan all of the routes, not to mention get Isla trained up to carrying 25% of her bodyweight in her rucksack too. And, I will be telling you guys all about it, every step of the way!

In the beginning
