‘Anatomy of a roar’ in Country Walking

October 19, 2021 at 9:53 am / by

Here’s an article of mine that just came off sale in the Sept issue of Country Walking. My utterly inspiring friend Ursula Martin arrived back from her trans-Europe walk in June, and I walked the five days with her, into Wales and across the finish line. My five days vs her 5500 miles!

She finished with a roar that I’ll never forget, a real deep-gut bellow that said more about the odyssey than all the talking about it we’d done over the days before, and the messaging back and forth during her almost-three-year walk and gruelling lonely periods of lockdown.

Country Walking made space for my pitch in their Sept issue, and here it is.
