In total, we walked about 7 kilometers (but it felt like 17 kilometers) and we are still collecting money. I was really tired after the walk but I'm glad I did it as it was for a very good cause. :-)

WE DID IT
Yesterday, I went to do a charity walk for the Marie Keatinge Foundation in Glendalough,Wicklow with a few other girls in TY and fifth year. We got up really early for the long drive down and the walk started at 11 o'clock. It was much harder than I expected it to be! The first half of the walk was all uphill and we had to take a lot of breaks. We walked up so high that our ears popped! When we got up to the very top, it started lashing rain. We got soaked! The wind was also very strong and at one point, we thought the wind was going to blow us over the edge of the mountain. Luckily, the rain started to stop as we went back down. After the walk we changed into dry clothes and got hot chocolate from the shop.
