Woohoo we finished! 270 miles and its over. The climb at the start was a nightmare! I thought my god 27 miles and it starts like this? Another few hours later i was still thinking the same. For a day thats such a long way it doesnt hold back, every big hill i could see, we went over :( very tiring and mentally challenging too. I was starting to wonder if we should sleep in one of the mountain rescue huts! We decided to plod on and when we saw the sign for Kirk Yetholme 4.5 miles... What a relief, then that small distance seemed to take forever. When we eventually got there i saw the Border Hotel this marks the end of the pennine way. Went straight in and ordered a guinness :) after a chat with the barman and a free half of beer for my trouble.. All people who finish get one, i was asked to sign the book :) we posed for a few photos and after a few pints we went home :)
