Well, I finally did it. It took me 971 miles and 13 days, and at the time of writing I've raised over £3000 for Saxon Wood School, so thank you to everyone who has contributed.
I've kept a brief diary of the journey, mainly to remind myself of what it was like and the places I passed through, but it's there for anyone who's interested in reading it.
I'm hoping it will also remind me why I shouldn't attempt it again for a long time, although my sore knee is currently serving as a useful reminder.
It would have been nice to have more time to spend in each place, and to have been able to choose the places I stayed in advance.
But not knowing how many miles I would be capable of doing each day made this a little difficult. As it was, things went well, and I only took one day longer than initially planned.
There's a real sense of achievement at the end, which was heightened by the ever increasing sponsorship total - a huge amount gratefully received from family, friends, and also from people I met en route.
