My lovely Salomon hiking boots, with Gore-Tex covering went straight through the middle of those babies. My feet remained as dry as they were when I started and I didn't have to do that awkward puddle-missing dance. Just one straight line, functional and simple. Just how I like it.
As I emerged the other side I felt like...
It's a dance with high stakes. If you miss a step, particularly at the beginning of a long walk you'll end up doing the rest of the walk with potentially squelchy feet. And we all know how socks rub when they're wet.
As we left the second set of ankle deep mud, from behind I suddenly heard "Oh. Yeah walking boots....cause it might rain on the day".
Apparently though Si is going to walk with plastic bags around his feet. I promise to take photos.
It was a quiet one this week, just me and Simon. After the incident with the size-too-small boots from last week Tash is still nursing a toe like a balloon and a twisted ankle from a clump of grass that attacked her.
Amber was just slacking ofc ;) Nah, we went for a slightly shorter distance to work with Simon's knees - apparently even when you're built like a twig your knees can give you gip! I'd never have known, I always blamed my weight for the case of runners knee I had when I first started running!
So, the Salomon boots were great - super comfy, and the New Balance trail shoes Simon went for were apparently very good for dancing in :p
We managed to avoid being rained on directly, which I feel was one of our greater achievements - and we also have a list of people we intend to coerce into support team duties, since we're a person down after "email-gate".
Still, things progressing nicely. Just hoping at the moment that Tash's foot stops swelling. I think I'll be writing to the shop in question and asking whether they'd like to take part in the event in place of my sister. *hurumppph*
