Well, fully recovered from the Eden Project Marathon now and back on the schedule leading up to my next race, which will be the Newcastle Town Moor Marathon on the 21st of this month. The weekend long runs are just routine now and the cooler weather is making them a lot easier since I was struggling a bit in the summer having to carry considerably more water if I was out for something longer than 9 or 10 miles.
Donations have been slowing down but that was only to be expected with such a long challenge. By the middle of the year most people had largely forgotten, aside from the odd “are you still doing that running thing?” question. Thankfully though, there’s always someone new finding out about what I’m doing and giving me their support which has kept me going throughout. I’m hoping that as I approach, and finish, my final race that a lot of people have been holding out to see if I could really do it and will dig deep and donate once I’ve chalked up all 12. I’ve still raised a significant amount of money already though and to all who have given so far your contributions are greatly appreciated.
Anyways, off for a nice easy Monday run now to loosen off the stiffness from Saturday’s 13+ miles. Thanks for reading 🙂
