    Last night, me and my friend took part in a charity walk for a local hospice, it was one of the most amazing things I have ever done :D

    There were 2000 of us and the walk was 8 miles long, starting at midnight :) I found it quite difficult because I rarely walk anywhere and I didn't do any training :eek: but we managed! We finished at 3:30am and we got a certificate and a medal :D

    we're probably going to do it again next year, but if we don't, we're gonna offer to marshall the walk instead :D

    Thought i'd put up a few pictures of the walk for you all, it was a really good night, a bit tiring though :D :D

    just a few of us on the start line :D there were still loads of people behind us too :D

    [​IMG]
    Just after we set off, the line went further than I could see both in front and behind, it was an amazing sight :)

    [​IMG]
    Me and some firemen who lined up outside the fire station to watch us go past :D :D yes, I know i'm lucky :D

    [​IMG]
    Me and my friend before we set off, a nice lady took a photo for us :) i'm the one with the stripy hair LOL


    [​IMG]
    and me looking like a bit of a weirdo before we set off :D

    So, just on the off chance.... did anyone else take part? I don't think there's anyone from my area on here, but you never know :D :D
    oh, and all together, we raised £200,000 for the hospice :)

    Fair play to you! I love the idea of doing a midnight walk, at least you wouldn't pass out from sunstroke! lol. That's a great amount that you all raised too. Well done!:thumbup1:

    Yeah, if it wasn't at midnight I doubt I woulda signed up for it, it just seemed like a really cool opportunity :) I didn't think about just how far it was until I saw the length of the route though :lol:

    Yay, thanks :D :D :D :D

    Yeah, it was a really good atmosphere! It got to be quite a tired atmophere at the end though! The last 5-10 minutes of it were the worst, I knew how close I was to the finish line and I just wanted it to end, all the way up my legs were killing, I was really hungry, I hadn't eaten since lunchtime on Saturday, i'd been on my feet at work from 10am-6pm and I was more than ready for bed LOL but it felt great to finish it and know what we'd all done :)

    ooh, and we had little cards on our backs to say who we were walking for, and I was walking for my Great Grandma, My friend, my dog :D and our very own Sammy Sunbeam :D

    Congratulations on completing the walk and on raising so much money for a great cause.

    I have always wanted to do something like this, but sadly nothing like this happens in my area
