After cycling 100 miles many times, I've decided to have a go at walking 100 miles! In one go, with no sleep. And the West Highland Way, a long distance route through the beautiful country I live in, seems like a great route for the challenge. It is actually only 96 miles, but I'll probably get lost and end up walking an extra 4 miles. If I don't, I will walk an extra 4 miles past the end. I will be starting the walk on the 14th June 2019, and I'm aiming to complete it in 48 hours. It will be by far the furthest I've ever walked in one go (and the longest I've ever stayed awake in one go!).

I'm doing the challenge in aid of Barking Mad Dog Rescue, a UK-based charity who rescue and rehome street dogs from Romania.

I have just come back from volunteering with them in Romania, and after seeing the amazing work they do and how in need the dogs are, I wanted to do more to help. For more information see their website: www.barkingmaddogrescue.co.uk.
