March the 14th finds us on the 73rd day of the year, and one fifth of the way through the challenge of running a mile a day in 2017 for charity, YAY! It’s great to mark milestones, but 365 does not factorize all that well (only by 1,5,73 & 365), so actual subdivisions are few and far between!
While on the subject of silly numbers it is also π day (if you take the American reading of the calendar for the 14th March 3.14…) so, 1/5th of π for me it is then!
Today’s run took me out through the village, where the shops and deliveries have been seemingly roused from slumber by the jackdaws chattering in the trees at the brightening sky. I then turned down the steep hill that leads to the station and the sea, past the statue of Gladstone who it seems is still staring resolutely at a sign for the cycle path. I looped back along the water front where the tide is out and the pathway is strewn by shells of diverse kind, picked open by the gulls and wading birds. All this and back home in time for my cup of tea to not be too cold. It’s good for the soul.
Thank you for all the support and for taking the time to read this. It’s great to be able to get out and do this while doing some good at the same time.
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
