To the bus stop...and beyond!

So. I ran to The Bus stop. I'm assuming everyone had the landmark they wanted to reach someday? I had heard tale of this fabled place. MM would casually drop into conversation that he'd been for a "quick" run to The Bus stop and back. When I started this malarkey 6 weeks ago, it was inconceivable I could get anywhere near it. But, this evening, I did it. Yes. Little old me got to The Bus stop. I'm considering making a blue plaque in honour of the achievement.

Ps. I should say it's only a mile away. But what a mile.

Those plaques would definitely take off if you started making them. Poppypug could put them on supermarkets!

That sounds great to have a goal that you've worked towards and shows your progress! Not just there, but most of the way back too!

Absolutely on board with the blue plaque idea! When you start your business I'd like to put an order in for The Bike Rack At The End Of the Promenade please. :)
