September 100 mile challenge

Been a bit quiet on the running front recently, but that does not mean I’ve not been running.  In order to motivate myself I (fuelled by gin again) entered a virtual event to complete a distance of 100 miles in September.

I had new shoes too, Asics Gel Kayano 22, which my lovely other half bought me for our anniversary present (he is one cool guy for getting the perfect gift).  I had not set myself any goal for daily distance, just knew that 100 miles was a lot.

Achieving 100 miles by the 21st was something to be proud of.  I was able to enjoy some beautiful runs in both Hertfordshire and South Yorkshire – adding a variety of places, terrain and weather really energised me to be successful in the challenge.

In total I ran 131 miles.  Ordered myself a new pair of Asics as a reward (and entered the October 100 mile challenge just because….)
