Firstly let me thank all the organisers of the wonderful Parish Walk 2010. It must have been one of the hotest we have on record - it certainly felt like it up the Sloc. Huge thanks to the Race Director, Secretary, Assistants, Time Keepers and those that helped in any way.
Thanks to the Marshalls that kept us all safe on the roads, to the Corporate drinking station sponsors that supplied much needed water, fresh fruit and snacks to keep us walking.
Congratulations to everyone who competed, completed or supported the fantastic Parish Walk! It was a great day all round, with personal bests, many first time finishers and those who achieved their own goals!
Congratulations to Dave Walker (fellow blogger) who was a first time finisher with a brilliant time of 18:54:29 and 25th place- Well done Dave you deserved it as you put a lot of effort into your training plan and it paid off!
Dudley Butt (fellow blogger) made it to Peel in the blistering heat- I guess you knew that your injury was going to have a big impact on your walk, Dudley! Well done.
The Breakthrough Babes Team had a roaring success, we had 4 members complete the 85 miles, 2 x under 21's reached Peel in great times and others had a great walk and are already planning for next years race! We hope to have raised many £'s for Breakthrough Breast Cancer - we certainly had the publicity from BBC North West, and Sky TV - all great for raising awareness of this disease and charity.
I was delighted to score another Parish Walk finish (my 6th ) - my times however always reflect my lack training - so don't do as I do , follow Dave Walker's blog and have more success!
Lastly but certainly not least thank you to Murray Lambden (& Marie) for this fabulous website which is so impressive, accurate, informative and enjoyable. It has been a pleasure blogging , thank you for asking me Murray, I hope it has provided some enjoyable reading for those that viewed them.
Hope to see many of you on Wednesday evening at the Villa Marina for the presentation!
all the best
