Thirty Five Miles In

  Route 66 Update    

Alternate text

As part of the package, my Route 66 challenge send me virtual postcards as various milestones along my walk to LA. Today, I received the first for covering thirty five miles. I am ahead of my required mileage of six and a bit miles a day but I need to keep that up all year !


I got out early taking each dog in turn. First out of the gate was Misty for a short mile and a bit. It was dry but cold when we set off but it soon started to snow with some big chunks mixed in.

I swapped dogs then Gabby and I repeated the route arriving home, looking very wintery, in time for breakfast.

In the afternoon, post work, I took off on my own heading towards Kingshurst where I gained the Kingfisher Walk alongside the River Cole. I followed the river for a mile and a half to Shard End from where I made my way to Castle Bromwich meeting the other half from work and clocking up another 5.2 miles.
