Day 146 Mile 146: Two Fifths. It seems that 365 does not divide by many whole numbers so today I am celebrating being two-fifths of the way through running a mile every day for charity this year! So far I’ve racked up over 200 miles and, thanks to the generosity of friends and strangers alike, have raised over £550 for CLAPA (the Cleft Lip & Palate Association). Thanks all!
There have been days where running has felt like a real effort, but today is beautiful. The sun is out and its around 24° already (at 7:30am!). There is a breeze coming through the village from the east, which while that makes running out a bit tricker, pushes me back home and helps to keep things cool. Over the last few days there seems to have been an infestation of greenfly-esque insects at our end of the village which while they dont seem to do any harm seem to be incredibly partial to the yellow t-shirt I erroneously put on this morning. Apart from that the sun has got his hat on, the headphones are swtiched on, and everything feels amazing 🙂
I’m now also the happy owner of a ‘Professor’s Cube’ a 5x5x5 Rubik’s Cube which the geek part of me has spun into a 2/5 (or 3/5 depending on which way you look at it) configuration to celebrate today.
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.

Thanks as ever for all the support!
Today’s earworm is a bit of a cracker….
