A few weeks back, Peter and I went on a walk that was supposed to be a 5 mile affair. It turned out to be 7.5 miles!
As you can see, the participants were not exactly young. Peter is 64 (marked with an arrow), but was beaten by a 72 year old, our friend Liz.
We made several mistakes: We didn't take any water with us. Peter hates walking. It was very hot, not a good day for a novice.
There were some uphill stretches, which made things a bit harder. Peter doesn't do hills.
He's very fast up the stairs, though. Our cat, Pirate, competes with Peter for the computer chair, and even though the cat fares better, Peter holds a decent record.
Life is fun for retired folks in rural France!
