Day 220 Mile 220: 300 Miles Actually Done So Far! I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017 to raise money for the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) but I realized yesterday that as I have been doing at least a mile everyday that means that today I have run more than 300 miles this year!
So as a bit of silliness to celebrate this I quickly sketched out a route with the number 300 in it and ran it.
The really nice thing about doing stuff like this is that because of the expediencies of geometry you are forced to explore back roads and bye-ways which it is often all too easy to overlook.
Running around the walled town of Conwy it is very easy to be impressed with it’s 11th century castle and the coastline it overlooks and rightly so, but what struck me today were the hidden details; the almost hidden crook where the River Gyffin meets the sea, or the roads behind the gallery where the white-washed houses with their brightly painted doors are curtailed by the stone blade of the town walls slicing through the landscape. Throw in the brightly painted tunnel under the railway (decorated by a youth project some time ago) and the hustle and bustle of family owned shops waking from the slumber of opening time and it is a wonderful opportunity to revel in the beauty of normal life within spectacular surroundings.
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!
