Sponsored Walk: Final: St Mary's Church, Saffron Walden

The team should be here by 6.30pm.

Most of the team were, but John and I were bringing up the rear and got there by 6.50pm.

[Actually, this is not true! As an additional note to this blog entry made on Friday 6th May, I have been printing various photos that the team and support drivers took and the first people to arrive did so at 6.45pm so we were only 5 minutes behind them.]

This is me again rather than James by the way :)  My thanks to James for updating our progress during the day. I will do a proper 'final' entry, with photos, once I've recovered :) At the moment (10.30pm), I have just had a long soak in the bath and I am thinking about going to bed.

As expected, blisters gave me enormous problems, but we still did it! My incentive was a surprise comment from James on Thursday night. He said he would sponsor us for £50 and this would increase to £100 if we actually finished it! Well ...... had to do it then, eh?


[Additional Update on Friday 13th May.

The walk statistics as recorded by John's SatMap are as follows:
Total Distance: 42.2 miles
Total Time: 14 hrs and 44 mins
Total Time Moving: 13 hrs and 1 min
Average Moving Speed: 3.3 mph
