Walking round in circles…

I’m just back from a teaching trip to Seattle, and not too jet-lagged… which is good because I’m re-packing my bag for a trip to the Isle of Wight tomorrow. I’ll be spending the weekend walking round in enormous circles: two full circumnavigations of the island, totalling about 106km. Why, you may ask?

Well to start with, just to do something completely different. I don’t normally do any kind of monster endurance events. And while I was at it, I thought I’d raise some money for a good cause. What could be more important than educating children? It’s the silver bullet that solves so many problems. The charity I’m supporting is Room to Read, and you can find my fundraising page here.

Every little helps, and if you think this is a good idea, please also share the link with your friends.

I’ll write up the experience next week…


You can read more here about my preparation and pitfalls.

I'm sure you have an opinion: do share!
