At the sumit of Cadair Idris, after a 3 hour climb
Learnt lots about igneous rock and glacial erosian from my Geographer spouse in this amazing start to The 20/20 Heart Challenge.

Thank you to all of those who have supported me with welcome words of encouragement and / or sponsorship. Amazing that in just one week, I've  undertaken my first challenge and have raised more than £140 for the two charities that I am supporting, with more promised.

My idea for challenge number 2 is punting; watch this space for progress reports...
