I DID IT!!!

Yes I completed the half marathon - my second worst time ever (4:05) but I am just happy to finish and get my lovely shiny medal.  What a beautiful course...the only dull parts were in Hull and by the war museum but other than that it was lovely.  Passed through some great neighbourhoods - people sitting outside having their coffee and I was envious as I hadn't had one today.  Coffee and long distance walks don't jive too well for me!  I was pretty strong in the first half but lack of sleep caught up with me and I slowed down near the end. 

I am so exhausted it is crazy between the long walk and lack of sleep.  Tomorrow is a do nothing day - go to Cora's for one of their fab breakfasts and then do laundry.  Other than that it will be what I decide but nothing that involves much energy.  I still have 8 days left on this adventure so I need to keep healthy.  I am so glad I decided to go to Vermont on Tuesday...

I am so proud of myself for hanging in there and carrying on and another medal to hang on my new medal hanger!

Eilleen and I went out for a celebration meal tonight to the Fish Market.  It was her treat as I had given her my wall unit when I moved.  I had three kinds of shrimp with herb potatoes and asparagus - lovely.  And a big glass of wine - zifandel as I wanted something light and fruity. 

Early to bed tonight!!

Staying cool on the prairies and some future plans

My little burst of travel is over and it's back to reality.  Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.  And reality at home really isn't...
