Final Friday Walk!

Today's walk was our final one before we start Altitude training in Mosman next week. It is our final month of training, before we embark on the trip of a life time. We are walking to raise money for Diabetes Australia, please support us by searching "team into you" at www.everydayhero.com.au and donating. One of our team members was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 in adulthood (very rare), so it is a cause close to our gym.

With rain threatening, we met at the gym and decided to brave it. We did a delightful little bush walk, that ironically we haven't done yet (even though its the closest!), then tacked on three ascents of Collaroy Plateau at the end. The girls are all carrying 15kg- uncomfortably, but still strong and maintaining their pace. They are certainly something to be proud of when we consider where we have come from.

Saturday-week we will be walking all day from the city to Manly, our last big distance walk. Blue Gum Forest is after that, which I think will be relatively easy.
Counting down now, 6 weeks to go!
