I am bananas! Completely bonkas. Do you know how far 55km is? Well I do, intimately.

In a few short weeks time I will partaking in the annual Coastrek event. Our little team (four of us) will be walking 55km to raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation.

We have done a few warm-up strolls, you know the 30km kind. We have walked up thousands of stairs and I am sure there are thousands to come. My feet will need a year of weekly pedicures to recover.  There has been testing of gear, shoes, socks, chaff-preventing undies, suncreams, bras that don’t rub ohhh the list goes on.

As much as we freaking our brains out about it, we have had a top time training. The snorting laughter kind.

We don’t have many expectations for the day. We know we will make it. The state that we will be in when we finish, I have no idea. But we will get there.

We are looking for support  and you can go here for more info on how to do that.

Between now and when we kick this little adventure, these feet will keep on walking…..
