Today 2022.

My daughter is doing the Virtual London Marathon on behalf of Healthy Minds Calderdale. She has chosen a route around the upper Calder Valley, ending up on the towpath of the Rochdale Canal. I joined her for the first half of the route, starting at 5.00 am.

And 26.2 miles done near Sowerby Bridge.20221002_163321.jpg.bb4903107d4c154d4a9d1ecb3334bdd2.jpg


And with walking the first section with my daughter, and then walking home alone, while her boyfriend joined her for much of the rest of the route, I have completed a half marathon!
