Walking 1000 Miles


There I was, wandering the streets in the drizzle as it was going dark and taking the odd quick snap on my phone.

It’s totally out of character.

Drizzle is a great motivator for me to stay in.

And I usually avoid walking in the dark in case that soggy clump of leaves isn’t actually a soggy clump of leaves.

So why on earth was I out wandering around?

Because on Friday I discovered the #walk1000miles challenge and I’d walked 2 miles. It’s drizzled all weekend but no way was I going to end my first week with a grand total of 2 miles on my progress tracker, so out I needed to go.

Now I’m ending the week on a grand total of 7 miles. Okay so maybe it’s not all that grand but 5 of them I wouldn’t have done without the challenge so it’s not a bad start at all.

Here’s to next 993 miles!!

More about the challenge here.

And yes, I do keep hearing the Proclaimers singing in my head!
