How are you all?
Sorry it's been so long since my last blog post....busy as ever.....loads of ideas for posts just not enough free time to empty them out of my head.
I thought it would be a good idea to update you all on how I'm getting on with my 17 for 17 challenge.
My last post on this was 28th May when I had completed 13 of 17 events
Events 1 - 8
Events 9 - 13
At that point I hadn't received medal 13.....so here it is

Sunday 30th July saw we complete my goal to run 1000km this year, just a wee bit ahead of target.
There will be a medal for this one too, though I haven't submitted yet.....going to see how far I can go.
I'm going to sign off here & say goodnight & thank you to all of you for helping me get to this point. I couldn't have achieved so much without all the encouragement, motivation, support & love from all of you.
Take Care Everyone
Lot of Love
