I’m still on a high from last weekend’s 24-hour race. I’d entered it largely as an attempt to give a final boost to my Lakeland 100 training but it turned out to be a great event in its own right – and I’m still feeling the exhilaration from hitting the 100-mile mark in just over 22 hours. The neck still hurts but the buzz is beating it.
I’ve also been getting a bit of a buzz from the fundraising with some old friends and distant relatives among the recent donors. The grand total is £1,876.98 so far (£2,163.83 including Gift Aid). I’ve now done 863 miles towards the target, plus 420 in training, which doesn’t count. Why, I ask myself, why?
