Day 365: 1095Miles

I’m not sure what to say. It’s all done. I just wanted to get the final blog up. I’ll try and put something up in a few days when it’s all sank in. But for now…

…I went for a nice paced run around one of my more regular routes this evening. I was joined by some new people to the blog and some names you’ll recognise.

Thanks to The Man from Spandau Ballet, The Mond, Bean, The Full Continental, The Boss, The Legal Lady, A Touch of Frost, TD, The Older Gentleman (he’ll kill me for that) and The Sunbed Boy for coming along.

Day 363: Clueless

No clue what to write. I think I’ve run out of all steam (at least for the blogging aspect).

Run done :)

Day 362: Three is most definitely a magic number

So today is technically my 365th run. I started a few days before I got my log in for the blog and decided to just start the challenge fresh when I did.

I’m not sure what possessed me to do that but most importantly I have 3 days left of 3 miles a day :)

Day 361: Blood curdling screams

I still don’t know how I feel about this coming to an end but I guess it’s not a bad thing!

A short run around a local quarry. It’s usually completely quiet there but The Schemer, Crazy Faye, Crazier Minnie and I caught up on two neighbours. Somehow our panting and pounding didn’t alert them until a the last second and we scared the life out of them. I felt bad for them but the blood curdling scream made my run. Possibly one of the funniest things I’ve witnessed during my challenge and I’ve witnessed some odd things in the last year!

Day 360: Introducing Faye

Early for a Saturday. Myself and The Schemer headed out with Crazy Faye for something close to 11 miles today. Though I had some technical problems at the beginning which cut a mile of the route.

We both has right knee problems but Crazy Faye had no problems except having to put the odd dog in its place!

Day 357: Bean == bad influence

Just home from “Friday” night drinks with Bean. She’s a terrible influence!

Went for my run between work and cocktails. It was pretty nondescript!

Made my fundraising target today!! :) Of course that doesn’t mean people need to stop donating 😉
