That was me at BMF today. I would start from the front (luck and position) and end a run at the back. 

I kind of expected it after carrying two cups of tea up the stairs this morning (one way to wake sons) and finding myself jelly legged and breathless. Oh dear, BMF would be a challenge. 

And it was. It was hot and humid making it hard work all round but I was running on empty.  I’ve been trying and succeeding to lose weight recently  (more in another blog soon) and some days I get my fuelling for exercise totally  wrong. Today was one of those days and I was jelly legged and dizzy. I must have underestimated the effect  of my extra Juneathon activities even though I have been keeping things easy and short.   

Anyway my mini run streak has still continued for Juneathon day 5, even though I was unable to press start on my Garmin!  We did run plenty (I felt every blooming step)  plus I  Cycled   5 miles getting there and back.
