This weekend I have agreed to be part of a team taking up the challenge of walking 50 miles in 24 hours crosscountry around the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire. The route starts and finishes in Great Missenden and loops round anti clockwise taking in Chesham, Wendover, Coombe Hill, Pulpit Hill, The Ridgeway, Chinnor, Stokenchurch, Bledlow Ridge & Prestwood..... Good god what have I let myself in for!!! I've never done this distance before. Although I'm excited about it I'm also apprehensive about the challenge.
To make matters worse I can't hang around as Newcastle are playing against Sunderland live on TV at mid day on Sunday so I've got to make sure I'll be back home for that!
