t-5 #runthecoast the last Sunday run before our challenge

The clocks went forward today. That always means some confusion – and some start time anxiety when it comes to meeting up for a run in the morning. I set some alarms for 6am – because then I could check the time from a number of sources and then make sure I got up in time for the run.


It is Sunday. So that means a run with Egerton running club. It is the club based in the next village, and is a great group of people to run with. Today was raining. What else – it is a British Bank Holiday weekend! Susie came with me today – despite the rain – and we all sat waiting in our cars at the meeting point in Charing Heath.

The rain soon stopped and the sun came out. It was a lovely 6+ miler and it was great to chip chat with the others. Alison has just one 20 mile run left before the Marathon in London in April, and Andy has Thames Path 100 mile ultra coming up in May. Thanks to Diane for the route today – and the weather.

#runthecoast news It is now only 5 days until we #runthecoast – 210 mile run along the coast between Hythe and Eastbourne. We are running for RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) http://www.justgiving.com/hythetoIOW

We are really lucky to have a support driver in Karen – she is joining us to transport our kit and stopping at a few different spots along the route to bring us some food and drink.

I am spending some time today putting together all of our details, accommodation and kit lists for our run. I need to also get together a list of which other runners are joining us at various points during the four days. And some runners from Facebook are even going to bring us cake! yes CAAAAAKE!!!!!!!

We would love to hear from as many of you as possible on our Facebook page or on twitter @donealready @michaellikes2run @paulcommons1966 or use hashtag #runthecoast

    1. Thanks! Yeah – we probably go even further once we get lost 🙂 We ran 177 miles over 4 days last year around the kent coast. We are carrying on where we left off. Most of my runs around 3 – 7 miles. But 2-3 times a month I go 30 miles + – i just string them from one to another. Thanks for commenting. I started from nothing 7 years ago – and only 3 years ago went further than a marathon. We can all do it.

      1. That is great to hear that means there is still hope for me haha. I am slowly progressing but reading about everyone’s injuries I’m trying to take it slow and steady so that I don’t end up hurting myself.
