Square Mile Run Update

Despite some protests from my legs and lungs, I’ve upped my normal summer running regime these past few weeks in order to post a decent (i.e. not too embarrassing) time in the Square Mile Run next month.

This evening I did 3.5 miles (the race distance) around the local woods in a little under 32 minutes (I know, not exactly Chariots of Fire, but it *is* rather hilly around here!)  so with a couple of weeks’ training time left before the race I reckon I’ll be able to achieve my aim of breaking the 30 minute barrier. Keep that encouragement coming!

On the fund-raising front, so far we’ve raised £660 and are well on the way to our goal. Many thanks to all those of you who have donated or pledged!
