Dawn over the River Thames!!

26.2 miles done!!

The medal!!

Congratulations to Diane and Val for finishing in 8 hours 4 minutes!!!

Now you would think that Diane would be happy to put her feet up after 5 months of hard training and bask in the glory of finishing the Moonwalk - but she isn't!!

Diane is now in training for the 250 mile round cycle trip to Amsterdam which sets off on the 12th June 2009 in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Tonights The Night!!

May 16th has arrived and tonight is the night when Diane along with 14,999 other ladies will all be walking 26.2 miles in a decorated bra for breast cancer.

The training is over and Diane has packed her rucksack with all the essentials she will need to complete this epic task!!

The train tickets have been collected. She will be leaving Selby at 3.45pm arriving at Kings Cross, London at around 5.45pm. Once she arrives she has to get over to Hyde Park locate Playtex City and make sure she is registered before 8.30pm.

Then it is time to relax have something to eat and get her self mentally ready. At about 10pm she will get changed into her walking gear and her decorated bra and then have a warm up session, a light massage and do some stretching exercises. At the stroke of midnight she will be off!!

Diane is hoping to complete the 26.2 miles in around 7 hours and my fingers are crossed that everything goes well for her.

If you haven't sponsored Diane then you can still do so by calling in to the gallery and pledging an amount on the sponsor form here or you can donate on line at

Tonights the night Diane and I wish you all the best and I will be with you in spirit and if you need to talk at 4am then all you have to do is ring!!
