Anyone interested in walking through the night with me? Around London? In a bra? (Yes, even the gentlemen.)
I've often thought that it would be fun to join this annual event, which raises money for breast cancer (or should that be against breast cancer) - but I've never really had any personal connection to the Breast Cancer Cause before. Well, now I do.
You could say that again.
Haven't heard of the MoonWalk? Have a look at the website, here.
It is a night-time walk through London (no running allowed). Thousands of people take part. Fancy bras are part of the package: the fancier, the better.
Registering for this challenge is an act of optimism ("I will be strong enough in five months' time! I will!"). At present, it feels like stupidity to think that I might be able to walk five miles, let alone 13. But hey, five months is a long time. Sunshine, moonshine, here I come. (So I tell myself.)
I wouldn't mind a bit of company, so if anyone would like to join me... You can enter as a team (The Night Owls?). You can have a team made up of both full- and half-marathon walkers; they just make sure that you are able to start together.
Anyone joining is expected to raise at least £100 for the charity. You also have to pay a registration fee of just under £50.
I'm keen to register quite soon, as they have to limit the numbers and it's usually over-subscribed. So if you are interested, let me know soon! They don't know it yet, but I'm sure I can persuade the home front to cook us all a decent breakfast on arrival...
