Day 1: 30 miles Clanfield CE Primary to Malmesbury Abbey
What a great send off! Thank you to everyone who lined the causeway to send us on our way. My only disappointment was not being able to read all the banners the children had produced! If you have any photos of us, please upload them to our Flickr account, if you send me your email address I can add you. If you wish to view the pictures of our journey our photo stream can be found here http://www.flickr.com/photos/head3100/
Notable highlights of day one are numerous: The banners, Y6 and Mrs Foster accompanying us to the football club, Patrick Edwards joining us for an impromptu 10 miles (in his overalls, shirt and tie), Mrs Haughton for watering us at Lechlade, our own rolling paparazzi following us to Kempsford, Lynn Mander running further than she planned to (20 miles, fabulous), Aidy Hillier for all his support with water and fuel and the reception we received on entering Malmesbury Abbey.
Sitting here, writing this my legs are beginning to feel somewhat more normal and ready for action all over again tomorrow.
Leaving from the Abbey at approximately 8am and winding our way to Peasedown in Bath. Route can be viewed here http://www.getamap.ordnancesurveyleisure.co.uk/?key=pu-7jGNAi7ilFZ4Vx0EC6w2
Thank you for all your support.
