Vierdaagse Day1

At 5am the weather was awful, very heavy  rain = time for waterproofs. Not what I wanted with a 25 mile walk ahead.

I arrived at the start  of the walk at 6am, completely in the dry!

I won't write much, I'd rather let the pictures tell  the story. Briefly: it was very hot, a huge amount of fun, and the other 44,999 walkers seemed to enjoy it too. I crossed the start line at 6.30am and finished at 2.30pm. 

25 miles done, 75 to go!

Oh, and that last photo IS the inside of a pub, but it was taken after I'd finished the walk. Honest.
