3 hours and 15 minutes !!

Sue and I completed our 10 mile Ribbon Walk for Breast Cancer Care on Saturday in just 3 hours and 15 minutes which we both think is brilliant!

The weather held out for us, it started to rain just before we were due to set off but the wind blew the clouds away and it turned out to be a perfect day to walk around the grounds of Harewood House.

The scenery was stunning and the atmosphere was great, with lots of people dressing up for the occassion!

Even some of the men that took part had dressed up - I love this guy with black umbrella!

I have to admit that towards the end I did struggle and I was so pleased that Sue pushed me on to the end. I would not have not finished but I would have stopped for a rest and it would have been so much harder to get going again.

As we approached the finishing line there was a 3 piece band playing, which was really nice.

We crossed the line, which was made up of all the ribbons that everyone taking part had written on, to lots of people cheering and we were given our medal, which is really nice!
We then had a pimms and a bbq to finish off a lovely afternoon.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored us we will let you know the final figure very soon
