Day 281 Mile 281: The Clue is in the Title! Several years ago a friend of mine once challenged me to a race up here. He’s not a bad lad, but he has the strange fitness which seems to get bestowed upon people for whom ‘morally right’ is very definitely separate to ‘strictly legal’ and has probably had one two many amphetamines over the years. He is one of the kindest people I know, but I’m also aware that I would never be allowed to forget it if he beat me either!
Thus far I have avoided taking him up on this. but today I finally went up (and down for the first time). The road is everything you would expect from it’s name, a steep incline out of the village, out through the trees and up onto the hills. It is a real challenge going up, and great fun to come back down. It was slow, but I ran all of it, even though it would have been quicker to walk in places, and I didn’t stop either. Now home to do last night’s washing up!
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!
