Forces March 2013

So where do I start with this thread?

I approached the +The Veterans Charity at the start of the year after seeing some posts and comments on +Facebook Login that they were a local charity which looked after the needs of veterans, either currently serving or members who have been discharged or left the armed forces.

After a bit of digging I found out that they carried out what is known as the Forces March... "The Forces March is one of the UK’s top endurance events. Runners and walkers cover more than 135 miles in five, highly demanding and challenging stages over five days from Ilfracombe, North Devon to Bulford, Wiltshire".

First attempt at blogging

I've never written a blog before, and after seeing some others - thought I'd give it a crack.... so here goes!

Just back from a week spent in Hay on Wye, on the English/Welsh border doing outdoors things.... have to recommend Gorge Walking, nothing better than jumping off of a 25ft high stone into about 18ft of rapid running water!
