I am currently seeing all walking I do as training for my fundraising night-time trek to the summit of Mt Snowdon in May 2021. I have been trying to get out for regular walks as much as possible and also scheduling in some longer walks with my daughter who is completing the challenge with me. We discuss where we might find hills and we discuss walking up and down hills as part of our training. I should probably explain that whilst the East Midlands is not flat, it is not mountainous. We decided we have a few hills closer to us than we had previously realised. Whilst walking around around where we live we have noticed this more and more. They may not be mountains, but they are better than nothing. We decided the other day that we would go for a wander around where my daughter lives.
We don't have trams where I live so I admit I find them rather exciting. We were not going on one today though, this was a walky day.
We waved at Ratcliffe On Soar Power station, a landmark of my life, when coming back from holidays as a child I always knew we were nearly home when we saw it.
Please support me if you can to complete this challenge (did I mention it is at night?). At the time of writing I have raised 40% of my target so I still have a way to go in every sense. All the money is going to the horticultural charity Perennial, whose services are needed more than ever in these dark Covid days. The trip is already paid for so every penny donated goes directly to Perennial.
Stay safe everyone and be kind.
