Thank you everyone for cheering me on, I felt all the positive vibes from everyone.
I'm exhausted right now so the full report will have to come later. But.. I did finish it wasn't pretty and I have some painful blisters on the balls of my feet, but I didn't let them make me get on a bus or take a short cut, I gutted it out and I'm proud of myself because it was miserable and it would have been easy to just get on one of the busses!!
