Today is a pretty big day for me, for the first time ever i’ve clocked up over a thousand miles in a year, nearly three times more that i did in the whole of last year (and we still have 3 months to go this year).
I know its a bit of a random thing to celebrate reaching a particular number of miles, but 1000 just seems to be a bit of a landmark and I have to admit to being a bit of a stats freak, religiously logging my runs on not one but three running sites.
The 1000 miles has included: 25 runs to or from work, 11 circuits of the “peter’s pies 6 tyne bridges run”, 6 runs between railway stations, 2 marathons and half a dozen fell races. In total i’ve ran for just over 171 hours, listened to about 3000 track on my ipod, worn out two pairs of trainers, and made a few new friends along the way.
Now if that is not worthy a bit of sponsorship for the Eve appeal I don’t know what is…. www.justgiving.com/davidcoxon
