I Ran


Juneathon day 14.

I left. I ran. I collapsed on the sofa.

8.42 miles

Juneathon running total… 59.78 miles.


What I didn’t tell you in today’s blog, because I’m collapsed on the sofa with a glass of rose, is that I went to Hyde Park for a (long time needed) bit of a longer run to make the most of a lovely day.  I was wearing a few more clothes (well, a vest) than yesterday however I still felt a little under dressed when I huffed and puffed past a marquee full of very well dressed people having afternoon tea at an antiques show.

That marquee is not the only thing thats been built in Hyde Park recently. I was very put out by the building of all the stands for the Olympics which has started at the side of the serpentine which meant I can’t run my usual loop of the Serpentine and had to take a big detour (up a slope) and then run past lots of fences and porta-cabins.  Just as well I had the Bee Gees in my ears to sing along to and keep me chilled!
