Day 365 – Done and dusted…

In one sense today was just another day on the challenge…it was busy for me personally as I needed to sort out getting a new car but then in another sense it was a huge day for me…365 runs…1095 miles….all done.  Time flies! I cannot believe it was a year ago that I started running…

I feel much better for it and will keep to this healthier lifestyle in the future.

Firstly I owe a massive thanks to my good lady wife, Emsy Mc, without whose continued support I couldn’t have achieved my objective…thank you sweetheart.

Secondly a massive thanks to my brother Ivor who did his own fair share of running this year and ran with me across London and Oxford and Portugal. Top bombing!

Thirdly 2 shout outs for Jon and John who put this madness into my head…and supported me through it.

I’m taking tomorrow off but start marathon training on Wednesday….woohoo….I’m not running tomorrow!

Thanks also to all those of you who sponsored my efforts….it was much appreciated.

Hasta la vista, Davey out.

Day 364 – Last lazy Sunday of the challenge

I was exhausted today after yesterday’s car exploits….we stayed in bed until 11am…when we woke we went straight out to the local….armed with iPad we set about picking out a new car…the old one is kaput.  I ran late afternoon and enjoyed the peace of the old airfield.

1 day to go…
