Well as anyone who follows my blog will know on 13th September I started my Miles for MAMA challenge intending to cover 1000 miles before 13th July next year. That date will be my grandson Jake’s first birthday. 1000 miles, why that amount? It is all to do with the charity Mama Academy and their Made to Measure campaign. It has been estimated that if all hospitals adopted personalised growth charts for all pregnant Mums 1000 stillbirths could be prevented every year.
So with walking shoes at the ready I set off on the very first day of the challenge and did a 10.3 mile walk along the banks of the River Tyne. It was a beautiful day and Hubby and I arrived home feeling energised. Unfortunately since then I have only been on several much shorter walks. So miles covered to date is 23.6. However I’m hoping this will change a lot over the next couple of weeks. I finished work this afternoon for two weeks and have a little trip planned. Off to Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria. All beautiful walking country so I intend to put a good few miles to my total.
As well as my walking challenge I am having several lessons on working my way around Twitter and WordPress. My daughter has had many a text because I couldn’t get pictures on my blogs and have now learnt to take a screenshot from my phone and put it on here. So now you can have proof of the miles I’ve covered as I am using the Map My Walk app and can pop it on my blog. So next time I do an update I hope I can tell you I’ve covered tons more miles.
As well as raising awareness for a great little charity, myself and the rest of the Miles4MAMA team would very much appreciate you contributing a few pennies to the charity. See our fundraising page on Just Giving team Miles4MAMA
