This time last week I was gearing up to walk a marathon. It was a bit of a last minute decision, my sister wasn’t able to make it so I (some would say stupidly) offered to walk in her place to complete the team. Now I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, especially with nil training under my belt, but I have youth and fitness on my side. It’s not something that I would advise however people have done crazier things and it turned out to be a fantastic experience. So why a marathon?
