When I was a competitive runner, it always bemused me that, if I drove round a marathon course which I had run, it always seemed to be longer by car.
I have just driven from Lancashire to Portsmouth - a journey which took me almost 4 weeks when I did it - in the other direction - on foot. I can't say it seemed longer today, but it certainly underlined for me the enormity of the walk I now have behind me. And when we arrive in France tomorrow morning, the journey home will be getting on for 3 times as far as today's drive.
And in many ways I prefer the walk version.
Donations to Pancreatic Cancer UK are now at 105% of the £7,000 target, and they are still rolling in. So don't be shy.
