Pete, I immensely enjoyed your discussions with the Halma group here at Ashridge both last night and this morning. You're an inspiration to us all - especially your phrase "Leadership is earnt through respect from your team". Your comment about us all looking for the anchors in life such as houses that are paid for and pension schemes was very thought provoking too. It encourages me to survey my own life. Great meeting you - I shall purchase your book when I get back home at the weekend.

What a fabulous last blog, Pete, summing up the final hours of the race! You have captured the imaginations of yet another generation of youngsters at school and it's we who must thank you for including us in such a wonderful adventure. Yes, let's do something else soon! Wishing you a relaxing return to the family fold - Gini and the kids from Littletown

Congratulations Pete for your finish! We have been tethered to the computer all morning as you have marched smartly toward Pointe à Pitre. Good show! Enjoy the after race celebrations and rest - you have earned both! The girls and I are now off to have Natalie's cupcake in your honor (see previous note).
