So close..... I blame my daughter!!!

So close..... I blame my daughter!!!

Like others, I set myself a target for the year... I thought that 1000 miles (1610 km) might be achievable... I was close, with "only" 32 km short. Well maybe next year??

My excuse... No.1 daughter decided to give birth to twins a few weeks earlier than planned which sort of took my focus away from running for a few weeks! I'll let her off though and 980 miles isn't too bad for a granddad. :-)

Happy running and Happy New Year to you all :-)

Perfectly acceptable - that's an amazing distance anyway. Congratulations and as you say, not bad for a granddad.

Happy New Year.

Sounds like a good excuse to me! Well done, that is still an amazing distance reached that many of us could only dream of at this stage

Amazing mileage which you should be hugely proud of. The twins have an amazing Grandad.

Fantastic! Lucky twins to have such a great example to follow! Well done.

Congratulations! I missed my target by over 100k. Hey ho. No targets next year as they only gave me another reason to be mean to myself. Just running for me (hopefully when I get over this cold ...).
