Yorkshire 3 Peaks 2013 for Simon On The Streets

I wasn’t planning to do the Yorkshire 3 Peaks this year but I attended a briefing session this week with Simon On The Streets* and before the meet I had a look on the site and realised they were planning a fundraising challenge.
They have a team doing the Yorkshire  3 Peaks on 31st May, so not that long to prep – but I’ve signed up and I’m planning to get fitter by then (says me, having a beer or  3 too many on Friday and Saturday night, doh).

I’ve taken part in the Y3P twice now (see links below) and actually this time it seems more daunting, if anything. When you have a good idea where the long trudges will be, where the steep climbs mean you have to dig in, where The Bog is.. well, it’s definitely as much as mental as physical challenge this time around!
I’m just hoping for some suggestion of good weather 😉
