Help - I'm doing the Moonwalk!

Well, it had to come out sooner or later - it appears that I'm doing the Playtex Moonwalk 2008 http://www.walkthewalk.org/about.htm as a member of the Sweaty Betty Team http://www.sweatybetty.com/Scripts/prodlist.asp.

The Moonwalk is the walk which takes place in central London overnight. Everyone is supposed to wear their bras over their clothes. It's supposed to be the most wonderful event and I'm slowly coming round to the fact that I'm really going to do it.

We had our first training session yesterday - two hours spent walking round Battersea Park, following the trim and toned lovelies from Head Office.

How have I got involved? Well, I spend Monday morning walking around Wandsworth Common with the MBT walking group run by Sweaty Betty Battersea. It's all good clean fun. One morning, someone with a clipboard asked if I was interested and I said ok, never thinking I'd get a place as it's a very popular event.

A few weeks later, I got the news. So I'd better get training!

Of course, my family think I'm absolutely barking mad. And they're probably right. I can only hope that I can manage the 26 miles in the allotted 8 hour slot, otherwise I'll end up in a dustcart somewhere.

Barking, but fun!

Yes, it's for a breast cancer charity - hence the emphasis on bras and stuff. Training is going slowly - will have to crank things up soon.

This is 26 miles walking backwards doing that slippy-slidy Michael Jackson thing? You might end up begging for that dust cart . . .

oh no - NOW you tell me!
training is going very slowly. So slowly, I actually feel I'm going backwards!
It's just under three months now, and I'm already beginning to panic.
