Story

You are probably just like me.  You have two arms and two legs.

There are thousands of people in the UK that are not as fortunate as you and I, and in 2017 I am raising money for Limbless Association, a charity that helps people who have lost one or more limbs.

On the first weekend of May 2017 I am going to walk non-stop around the outside of the M25 motorway - a distance of approximately 160 miles - to raise Money for Limbless Association.  I'll be walking on the A and B roads as you aren't allowed to walk on the motorway itself (obviously), and think I can do it in less than 48 hours.

By 'non-stop' I mean that I won't sit down for the entire walk.  I'll be on my feet from the time I start until I finish.  During that time you will go to sleep twice, wake up twice, have six meals, and do whatever else you do during a two day period.  And I'll be walking - one step after another - for 48 hours.

I've attempted this before.  Last year I lasted 34 hours before stopping at 1am on the second night.  After a 36 hour rest, I completed the circumnavigation of the M25 on foot - with a total time of 86 hours.  You can read about my walk here.

But last year I didn't achieve my goal of completing the walk non-stop, so I'm going back again.
