What, no running gear?


It’s true, no running gear today because this is the last day before my “10K a Day” challenge in June (i.e run 10K every day).  I am taking a walk though because I am also taking part in the Global Corporate Challenge in which I am joining a team of work colleagues to see how many steps we can muster together each day.

“You must be mad” I hear you say and you’re probably right.  Running so many days in a row is something I have never tried before but I take inspiration from the great Ron Hill, who never missed a day for 52 years and 39 days!

Anyhow, It’s all in a good cause because I am raising money for a public access defibrillator in my local community of Rothwell Haigh.  (Justgiving).

I noticed while walking down a path which I usually run, how much more you notice.  Running is a great way to explore the local neighbourhood but sometimes it’s good to take your time.

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise” Ephesians 5:15 (ESV)
