If you follow my Facebook page you’ll have seen my husband’s heroic efforts in succeeding to run Hadrian’s Wall, UK, 86 miles in 3 days all in support of Dementia UK.
He did it alone (well apart from me as his right hand woman, coach and amateur masseuse! We both stank of Arnica by the end of it. LOL.) and he did it in all conditions. Wind, rain, hot sun, clouds. The terrain was flat, road, field, hills, country, city.
