365 Days of running later…

A final word from Alice

So, I did it – 365 days of running. I covered exactly 1700km, which was far more than I anticipated.  There were many highlights (some literal ones when I went on holiday to Capri and couldn’t find a flat run anywhere and again when my friend decided it would be fun to run up Cley Hill on Boxing day) but my challenge meant I got to explore some lovely new places both close to home and on my travels.   I also saw amazing sun rises, rainbows and views.  I probably ran 75% of the time with just my trusty 4-legged friend, Newt, for company;  but I was also joined at various points by friends, my kids and family – none more so than on my final run back in my home town on New Year’s Eve (above) cheered back by Becky who was my inspiration behind this challenge.

So now me and Newt can put our feet up, I am very proud to say that we have raised over £4000 for Dorchester County Hospital Chemotherapy Department, where Becky is currently being treated – so hopefully she and many others will get the benefit of the funds raised very soon.  It is not too late to donate, every penny is much needed and very much appreciated.

Thank you very much to all those who have been generous already.
