Weekly Update on Dr Lee’s 100 Marathons in 100 Days Around UK Mainland

Week # 1: from London to Brighton

Setting off on a very cold, very windy and very rough morning at the beautiful Dungness. Definitely seas for a hard hat.”

Yes Dr Lee has started his 100 Marathons in 100 days (see our post How a Rheumatologist will kayak 100 Marathons in 100 Days published  last month) on April 1st from the Ahoy Center:

It was warm and nice out there but quite a challenge to paddle out of the Thames on day #2:

On Tuesday he had lunch on Broadstairs’ beach:

And that’s what I love about such adventures: we discover new places and read about another country’s history at the same time-)

As of myself  I admit that I don’t know much about UK.
I visited London and around (Oxford College, Buckingham Palace and other usual stuff) while on a school exchange program back in the 70’s.

Never returned there!
So now I visit again but from a very different point of view-)

But from Wednesday ‘till Friday that was no picnic party for Martin:

Said Dr Lee on Wednesday. Here are 2 photos from Dungness and the Power Station:

To be a modern adventurer is hard, and the rest of the week was on the same pattern: cold and windy.
It’s an exhausting Martin we can view here on this video giving us an update and a few tips:

Today April 7th Martin reached Bognor at 4pm and has passed £12,000 in donations!!

Well done Martin-)
