I decided to cheat. On June 5, two blog posts ago, I wrote about the imminent Global MND Awareness Day on June 21 and the challenge for anyone to run 21 miles before that day, even if they only do a couple of miles at a time.
That’s not too difficult, surely. Everyone does it at his or her own pace. Chris my heroic godson will be trying to do it all in one go – see his splendid Comment on the 5th. Apparently one could walk or cycle the distance also.
In bygone times I’d have been up for that, and would do it even now if it weren’t for the illness.
Hold on though. A thought. Why don’t I unilaterally change the rules? Or at least change them for me. I can get out and about, with a little help from the Peacemobile and a chaperone. Why not? Dammit I will!
So, friends, since then yours truly has been putting in the miles and has every expectation of completing 21 before the 21st. There’s a bit of evidence below. Wish me success!
