One Week until I Climb Ben Nevis!

At last a post with nothing to do with running!
Still about exercise and a big moment in my life though.

In exactly one weeks time my older son and I will be celebrating his 11th birthday on the summit of the United Kingdoms highest mountain Ben Nevis :-)

We got the idea of doing something cool like this last year when we were watching Bear Grylls survival program. I came up with the idea of walking the second half of the West Highland Way. When I told my son he said it would be 'too easy', so I came up with the idea of climbing Ben Nevis instead!

We have hiked a little over the past year but never climbed a mountain before. We are both looking very much forward to the experience :-)
