Well nearly there!
We are due to go away Sat to meet up with Stephen Marsden and run on day 365 together so there was time for one last 3 miles around Grove before the challenge is complete.
Jon had Facebooked everyone to invite as many as possible to join us for a final 3 miles. He had quite a few replies but we were overwhelmed by the amount of people who turned up to support us and run with us. I’d spoken to our local paper and they sent a photographer down so hoping we get our ugly mugs in the paper next week! He took some shots of the two local running nutters along with my daughter Millie and Jon’s friend Ben – the two people who’s charities we are running for.
So eventually we set off (after a pint of course!) and not only where we joined by friends and family along with a host of kids, we were graced by the presence of the man who’s fault it is we have been running every day this past year – Steve Morris! Cheers for coming Steve and only joking, it’s James’s fault really but I’m still holding you partially responsible!
I’m sure Jon has covered most of the run in his blog so you can check the details on his rather tedious effort! Highlights though include Nigel turning up in a skin tight crash test dummy lycra outfit (fool!!), Jeff running another 3 miles after just running 12, Toby running day 2 of his challenge (welcome aboard mate, glad you’re taking over the baton!) and our wives getting totally lost on the airfield!
So it’s goodbye to Grove 3 miles for the year and only 3 runs left! Thankyou again to everyone who came down tonight and for your support throughout. All that was left was to have a pint or three to celebrate!!
