Trekking for families facing dementia
I have to admit, when we first saw the challenge online, we were more excited by the idea of a walking challenge – surely much more pleasant than running a Marathon or climbing a mountain!?
But we came to realise that walking 100km, taking 20-30 hours through day and night, up surprisingly high hills, was NOT going to be quite the walk in the park we first thought.
The training involved very long walks for hours through the day. That said, it was a lot of fun and we spent a lot of time out in the sun raising our step count. We walked the Waterford Greenway in Ireland, which was absolutely beautiful.
