What a year of running. 24 races, including 11 full marathons (26.2miles) each, completed my 50 marathon challenge for the hospices in April, raising £9,500. Up to 59 marathons now. A couple of good times (for me!), Brighton 3:37 & Reykjavik 3:34.
Just one more goal for 2012, to run one more mile than 2011 (in total). Did 1807 miles last year & currently 35 more needed this week & then I am there.
So what for next year? Flying out to Israel (early January) to run Tiberias marathon, 30 miler in February closer to home in Leatherhead, marathon in Scotland in March, Brighton marathon in April & then Copenhagen in May, for hopefully a fast one.
Thank you to so many people for your support during the year, running with me, accompanying to races, my running widow wife, sponsors & supporters.
Wishing all the readers a fit & injury free year ahead.
