Our Glasgow clinic dental implant nurse Kasia Zawada has been putting in some training recently for a big charity challenge.
She took part in the Edinburgh Moon Walk which raises money for the Breast Cancer charity.
Kasia completed the 26 miles in seven hours – well done!
Here’s what she had to say:
“I had a great night with all the moonwalkers and supporters cheering us on.
“I think the event attracted about 4,000 participants this year.
“I did the full marathon 26.2 miles in 7 hours including having to wait a long time to queue for the toilet.
“Participants had the option of completing a lesser course of six or 13 miles.
“Some crazy walkers took on the challenge of two marathons back to back – more than 52 miles. They must be still out walking!
“When we started off at midnight it was cold and wet but it improved in the early hours and we had brilliant sunrise and a fresh sea breeze as we were walking along the coast.
“Not sure the total amount of money that will be raised but we were told before we started even walking we had raised half of million pound already!
“My partner Eric said i was overtaking everybody but when i reached 19 miles i started to be impatient and just wanted to finish quickly!
“It’s a great event and would do it again – and I’d recommend anybody to do the same. Roll on next year’s Moon Walk.”
