Day 337 Mile 337: Over £1000 Raised!!! Today is something of a milestone in that the fundraising part of this challenge has just gone through the one thousand pounds mark! To say that I am shocked is something of an understatement. When I started this year of running I hoped to raise £100 for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association by running at least a mile a day, but that target was quickly achieved. AS a result of the kindness and generosity of friends and strangers alike the total raised now stands at ten times what I hoped to raise and there is clearly time to go before the end of year!
Thank you so much 🙂
After the madness and fun that was the village festive fayre and fun run yesterday I was feeling a bit flat this morning but then I checked my emails and saw the new total and felt instantly reinvigorated. So I took myself for a run by the sea. The weather today is a lot warmer than it has been over the last few days and it is wonderful to see quite a few people out on the beach enjoying the sands on a temperate winter Sunday afternoon. A particular highlight was racing the elderly gentleman with the mobility scooter who lives up the hill, I have no idea what the top speed on his contraption is but it certainly shouldn’t be allowed to be fully ‘revved up’ in a pedestrian area!
Once again many many many thanks!
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.
Distance: 1885.6 meters recorded
(1 mile = 1609.34 m.)
Thanks as ever for all the support!
