Day 266 Mile 266: Running Past Milestones

20170923_085828Day 266 Mile 266: Running Past Milestones. Today feels quite momentous, having set out to run a mile every day for this year I have finally just passed the 365 mile mark. Yay! That’s the equivalent of one per day but I am actually going to do at least 1 mile daily for the year so in reality there are plenty more to come 🙂

Having clocked past this at the Penrhyn Parkrun it was great to notch this up with my friend, conspirator and brass player extraordinaire Mr. Chris Williams. Chris is also celebrating; running his 100th Parkrun today and is thus thoroughly deserving of his centurion helmet.

Chris and little Tom coming across the line to mark Chris’ 100th Parkrun. Huge respect to both of them 🙂 Da iawn hogia!

Having known this ginger legend for the better part of two decades it’s an absolute pleasure to be able to share the silliness, celebration and cake with him….. (in fact it’s not massively dissimilar to what we get up to the rest of the time, only with less noise involved right now).

It was brilliant to be able to do this with our respective minions in tow, Alena chalking up her 6th parkrun and (to the best of memory) Tom’s 13th, massive achievements in their own rights.

Thanks very much too to Tom and Gemma for making cakes to celebrate Chris’ achievement, and thanks to him for sharing, although I think that eating all 40 single-handedly could have presented something of a challenge! As ever cheers to all the marshals and organizers.20170923_100917

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.
