Dangerous for my health, my feet, my washing machine and my bank balance.
I have spent sometime this afternoon going through my blog checking the ‘events’ I have completed this year. Now bare in mind, historically I would enter an event, train for it, complete it and then not enter anything else for a while. This year (and there are three months left) I have done the following
- Oh My Obelisk-10 miles
- Doynton Hard Half-13.1 miles
- The Grizzly-18 ish miles
- Ex to Axe-22 ish miles
- Haldon Heartbeat 8.5 miles
- Clumber Park Half Marathon-13.1 miles
- Blackdown Beauty-19 miles
- Ham to Lyme – 50k
- Dartmoor 10k
- Exmoor Half -13.1 miles
- South West Coastal Path Challenge-19 miles
That’s a lot of miles, entry fees, mud, medals, t-shirts, sweat and a few tears.
All of them bar VLM were off road. 8 of them I had not done before and each of these I found out about via Facebook. See what I mean its dangerous this social media interaction.
This week I purchased a 2017 calendar, usually I buy one after Christmas when they go 50% off,(no not tight at all just frugal!) so this is very early for me. The calendar is a special one, not just because it has a cute Teddy Bear on the front, this calendar is for me to add runs happening next year! Need to be careful I don’t double book myself!
I might think about deleting my Facebook account!
