So, Im currently considering my sanity! When I was younger I completed the Oxfam Trailwalker challenge in Australia...this is completing a course of 100km in under 48 hours and raising at least AU$1000 for Oxfam. I absent mindedly agreed to do this with a friend of mine here in Germany...but in true German form there is no point in doing something unless it really IS work....so its a 100km course in less than 30 hours (18 hours less!!!) and a minimum fundraising target of 2000€ (which is more than AU$1000 more!).
Well on the upside...the challenge is in September so there is lots of time to go till then, and I guess its a good challenge to complete and support my weight loss efforts. So be prepared for a number of upcoming blogs complaining about sore legs, exhaustion, long hikes in the middle of germany and the heart ache of trying to raise money in germany!
