Today I completed the City to Surf half-marathon - walking, of course - in 3 hours, 25 minutes. (Only slightly outdone by the winner - at 41 minutes, 19 seconds.) There were very old people and little children passing me by.
But I don't care. I did it! I've never walked so far in my life and my legs ache in ways I couldn't have imagined.
It was worth it because I have hopefully, along with my wonderful ACC walking buddies, raised some serious money for Australians Caring for Children.
Here's yours truly at the finish line a few hours ago (just in case you don't believe me).
