Oh Hang On

Target 1,000 miles; everything was going great, I had got to the middle of November, was running 30-40 miles a week and only 36 miles to go. I thought to myself, I’ll hit my target by next weekend. That’ll teach me. Another injury. I used the experience of last year when I picked up an […]
