And we're off...

"Haha - like Michael Jackson?"
The recipient of this information dissolves into hysterics...
"26 miles, sliding backwards, wearing a single diamante-encrusted glove?"

Er, no.

"26.2 miles, actually. Power-walking", I sigh, "wearing a decorated bra", which, upon reflection, sounds nearly as daft.

And so it begins.


A short introduction for anyone who hasn't been through this with us before:
In October 2007, myself and Debbie decided that it was about time we had another go at the Playtex-sponsored London Moonwalk. It's been three years since we last stomped around London in the middle of the night in the name of charidee, and we'd just about forgotten how painful it can be.

Sue - a first-timer this year - enthusiastically volunteered to join us and our small (but perfectly formed) team was born.

So. On 17th May, 2008 - at around about midnight (the start times are staggered) - we will set off on a marathon-length walk around the streets of central London, wearing a decorated bra (amongst other garments, of course). It will take us anywhere between 7 and 9 hours (depending on injuries/crowding/motivation/tea-stops) and the aim, of course, is to raise as much money as possible for several breast-cancer charities.

The official website explains it in far more detail here.

I thought it might be quite
a). motivating and
b). mildly entertaining
to document our training regime - hopefully with input from all of us.

And it's been a while since I blogged.
