The first “3 way” virtual run today. Joined by a new guest – Charlie Stanley Evans, and a returning guest (my very first one back on day 10!), his wife Rachel.
It was great to catch up, find out what they’re up to and generally feel the warmth of friendship in this tough time.
Now, there’s something you should know about this couple -they are very fit and very competitive. During my first run with Rachel (when we were actually able to run together), she dragged me to a PB at the time, and yesterday was no exception. After a gentle start I began to pick the pace up and eventually (although admittedly by this stage I’d lost them both through their phone battery failure) I pushed hard through the final 1km to a PB fastest ever 1km at 4:49.
Whilst this challenge is about raising money for We Love Football Academy, the side benefits of getting fit and feeling much better are great and, every now and then when little PB’s are met, it gives you a further lift.
I’m 46 days in with just 4 to do. Onwards and upwards.
