|Starting off on the trip of a lifetime!|
15 miles in we were joined by Rich and Sam Husselbee, Rich choosing to show his support with an 8 mile stint. What a fantastic suprise and great to see them both. Thanks also to Dave Hughes who joined the support crew for the whole morning.
After finding our way through gorse fields, dunes and railway lines we stopped for lunch with 24.5 gone. Struggling to find a location we pulled up outside HRH Duke and Duchess of Camberidge's gaff and following a breif security check lunch was served. With batteries recharged (phones and bodies) we set off. Neil ran for Sol, Chloe and Clare cyclced for Sol and Matt continued to drive for Sol.

|Day One done!|
Coastal paths gave way to country estates and pebble beaches as we wound our way along the south coast of this fantsastic island to the Menai Bridge. The RAF treated us to fly overs and the weather was, for the most part, kind.
The Bridge crossing was a real high point and one we will not forget. Good deeds were done today. One lamb saved, one phone found (Ross) and many generous donations arrived. The later is a huge motivation -Thank You all.
We are under no illusion of the challenge ahead for, all through the last half of the day, we have been running in the shaddow of Snowdon.
Ice baths done. Compression bottoms on. Pizza in and families tucked up. Time for a well earned sleep. Night John boy.
