So.. What started as a flippant remark.. Has somehow turned into reality!! Mike and I are riding from London to Paris in July. We will have been married for 10 years – and my suggestion of doing something different for our anniversary may have gone a bit far… But after 19 years together I felt that perhaps we needed to mark our own personal journey with a different travel challenge…
Doing the numbers..19 years together, 10 married, 3 children – somehow we have added these up to 300 miles in 4 days!
So this week is about trying to pull it altogether. The Fundraising packs are in, the justgiving site is live ( http://www.justgiving.com/Christina-Smith13) and I am attempting to create a blog to keep me on track and hopefully report some progress! First priority this week has to be to get everyone in our house over the dreaded winter lurgy, and then maybe get our bikes serviced. 8 years is a long time to have been stuck in a shed!!
And so to start us off, the words of Evelyn Glennie remind me that truly – we are only limited by ourselves!!
“The human body and mind are tremendous forces that are continually amazing scientists and society. Therefore, we have no choice but to keep an open mind as to what the human being can achieve.”
