Day 362 – 365 The Finish

Well that’s it i have finally finished this tough challenge, i knew it would be hard but i did not think it would be this hard, mentally it has been the hardest thing i have ever done, i have trained and ran 5 marathons but it does not compare to this. Did i enjoy it no am i glad i have done it yes. The final 3 mile run was the most enjoyable run i have ever done because my 8 year old son Isacc did the full 3 miles with me he was true to his word and said he wanted to do the last run with me. I would like to thank all my family and friends for their continued support through this last year i would not have done this without them. I will comeback and write more when i get some more time, i send my best wishes to those that are still doing the challenge and also those that intend doing the challenge. I will be raising money for my sons football team Blackpool Rangers under 9s for much needed kit and equipment take care Dave

Days 346 -361

These last few weeks have dragged, i am literally counting the days down now only 4 more runs to go before i finish this big challenge never again !!
The Garmin / endomondo has worked really well apart from 1 day a couple of weeks ago when i did the 3 miles and saved the run but the Garmin decided to freeze losing all the data for the run which im gutted about.
I am sure i will be smiling while i do the last 4 runs , reflecting on this challenge and how stupid i was to take it on.
