The Kiltwalk!

The Kiltwalk!

A week ago today, Jamie and I participated in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk to raise funds for the SAMH charity. We walked 26 long Miles around the city centre and pushed ourselves so hard! πŸ™‚

We woke up super early for a Sunday, around 6:30am and started our trip to Edinburgh. Ofcourse, we were all kitted out with our Kiltwalk badge and SAMH t-shirt.

We arrived at Murrayfield about 8:30am which gave us half an hour to get prepared, fed, watered etc.. before starting the journey. I was so excited and the place was packed with people also doing the Marathon walk. 

We started off strong, and with a good pace. But as the miles came I started to get tired and my groin was in pain. I pushed through however. I am really sorry but I didn’t take as many photos as I has planned to on our long walk. Here are a few I did take during some of the pitstops πŸ™‚ :


It was a mental battle more than anything for me. I felt sore at around 11 miles and needed Jad to keep me going, however when we reached the 9Miles to go sign it was like I had a new lease of life. I walked my fastest mile then and didn’t stop once. I knew I was nearing the end! Jamie started to tired at the last 4 Miles and I kept him pushing!

Finally, we reached the finish line!!! 

We were greeted with our medals and some well deserved fatty food! 

We stuck around for a bit to meet our pals who were also doing the walk. They finished about an hour/hourandahalf after us and, like us, were buzzing at what we had all achieved! 

Eventually it was time for Jamie and I to go home. Jamie was daft had didn’t stretch before sitting haha, so please watch these videos of him struggling πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€‹β€‹

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    video clips, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.

    Terrific blog!

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Spending some time and actual
    effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and
    don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
