C@' (catastrophe)

I have just discovered the catastrophic wonders of acute circulatory overload to lower limbs in walking 18km on hilly terrain in approx 26C heat in training for Oxfams trailblazer 100km in 36 hrs. The scalding type of rash around the ankles, a form of cellulitis referred to as golfers vasculitis. This looks angry and ugly, but settles quickly over a couple of days. I had thought it indicative of my own level of physical neglect and found it oddly comforting when other team members were similarly afflicted. C@' as a team is committed to raising $2000 for Oxfam (so not only do we get the joys of personal and team accomplishment, it actually makes a difference in the world. You can follow the endeavours of team C@' on our Oxfam webpage (donating is optional). A special thanks to Carol for showing global interest.
