As a means to get fit this year, I’ve decided to set myself a bit of a challenge. I’m going to attempt walking the West Highland Way in April this year. Originally, the plan was to do the walk for my own benefit, but more or less everyone I’ve spoken to about doing the walk has suggested walking it for charity.
So, that’s exactly what I’m going to do! It’ll come as no surprise to readers of this blog that my charity of choice for the walk is Butterfly Conservation. As I share my interests and concerns with the charity, they were the logical choice.
If anyone does feel that they wish to support me in this, please click on the ‘Sponsor Me’ link on the bar to the right. All donations are gratefully received and will go direct to Butterfly Conservation themselves.
If anyone wants to track my progress in getting fit for the mammoth challenge (for those that don’t know, the West Highland Way is a 96 mile walk, taking between 5 and 8 days, on average to complete), I have a separate blog, detailing my progress, and reporting on some of the places I’ve visited (or will be visiting) in the course of my training. I’ll also be updating that blog each day while I’m on the walk (assuming I can get a signal on my phone!), so that people can track my progress. The blog can be found HERE.
