Day 96 April 5th 2016

It’s been a strange couple of days. Recovering muscles,  swollen toes and waiting for the results.
Loads of angry and disappointed comments on the Oxfam trailwalk facebook page about the conditions and people’s experiences of the 100km.  Seems like there were a whole heap of issues;  closed checkpoints, dangerous descents, missing markers, record numbers of retirements. 
Of 160 teams,  only 86 finished with a full team of four. 
We ended up 14th team overall and first all women’s team.  Very proud of ourselves but also of all those other teams who ground it out in far worse conditions than us for longer.  A great effort all round, from the teams walking, the support teams, the volunteers, and the organisers.

Teacher of Languages first and foremost but passionate about learning and teaching. I have been learning how to blend technology into my teaching for the last twenty years and worked for seven years supporting colleagues to build their skills and confidence using digital technologies as part of their teaching and learning. In 2014 I was honoured to be awarded an eFellowship from Core Education which was a challenging and fun year. I am now a Connected Learning Advisor with Core Education. In that role I support school leaders in their planning and implementation of technology. I love being in the outdoors and spend as much of my time as I can in the bush, by the ocean and on mountains.
