Nijmegen Marches – Day 1

An early start, crossing the line at 5.30am (4.30am UK!). The weather was better than forecast and the sun was out most the day, which made it hot work in my Hotpants. The atmosphere was great with the locals supporting us well with music and refreshments. We were interviewed by Dutch TV and asked  how walking together in the Nijmegen Marches was growing our love for each other …. John admitted to being an un-romantic type of chap and hadn’t thought about the marches in this way!!

We completed the 40km in 7.30 hrs; visited the Red Cross tent where a couple of blisters were sorted; then had a little lie down in the sun!

We have now replenished the carbs, and about to retire ready for another early tomorrow!
