2 years ago: M.E. to Me!!

So today: 13.05.2015 I started the walk of a life time – John O’Groats to Lands End exactly 2 years ago!!

Here’s what I wrote in my blog for that day:-

Well today I woke up to brilliant sunshine and the knowledge that the day has finally arrived for me to set out on achieving a life long dream: walking from one end of this beautiful country to the other.

So I start the day at 730am and take the photos at the JOG signpost and settle to breakfast. What does a girl do when the realisation of what she is about to hits her? She cries! All through breakfast I was smiling and crying tears of pure joy. Yes, 5 years ago I wanted to opt for assisted suicide due to M.E and now I truly am living the life I love thanks to the Lightning Process. I’ve had a truly amazing day, even if it has left me with 2 cracking blisters: so what. I love them both. Lol

Now it’s time for dinner and sleep and see what tomorrow brings on the next leg of the journey. Tonight I’m in Wick: pronounced week. Tomorrow delivers another 14 miler on top of the 17.5 we’ve done today. What a lucky girl I am.
