Fun Run 2015

Cllr Stuart Emmerson had mapped the Fun Run for June. I was translating this into a document that could be handed out to the participants to show where to run etc.

After a few mistakes and concerns that I was telling people to turn left, when I meant turn right. I decided to go out and walk the route myself.

I mapped the walk so that I could report how long the run is…..

Well 10.47K (6.5 miles)  and 1 hour 57 minutes later, I was sitting in front of William Morris Gallery….. knackered!! A bruised left heel and chafing. If I said I was walking like John Wayne, you’ll guess exactly where I chafed!

As many of you may know, I am also on a sponsored slim for Eat or Heat. I was sitting there eyeing the Five Star fish and chip shop wondering if I should just have a bag of chips as a reward. You’ll be pleased to know, I resisted the temptation.

I urge you all to sign up to our Fun Run www.eatorheat.org/events.html

I am supremely unfit and I managed it in just under two hours. I’m sure you all can do better than me and have a good laugh while doing it.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
