  1. Yesterday I completed the March On Steps Challenge and I just want to say THANK YOU to all my supporters who raised £1230 for the Different Strokes Charity.

    If you remember I aimed to walk 10000 steps per day for 5 days each week. As a stroke survivor myself this was quite challenging and part of the reason I havn't made many blog entries this month was because I was so tired some nights, but I updated the charity page at just Giving each evening with my progress which you can still see at  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/anitaschallenge.

    I completed the challenge doing 278072 steps on the challenge days in March, an average of 12090 steps each day and a total of 94.25 miles.  Some days weren't without obstacles as you can see below and apart from the day we had to cross a rhyne and the bridge had dissapeared so I had to walk all the way back, my walks were very enjoyable.

    Thanks again to all my supporters and especially Rob my partner who always knows how to help me achieve my goals.

  2. So far so good.  I've been able to complete 5 days a week each week and some days have surpassed the 10000 steps by quite a bit. Also I've had such great support and we have raised over £1000. I'm so thrilled to have achieved this.

    I've been lucky with the weather and managed to stay dry, plus also enjoyed some lovely sunny days with birds singing, flowers coming out and enjoying walking with my partner Rob who is always a constant source of inspiration.
