I'm beaming from ear to ear this afternoon.

If you happen to have the October edition of Running Fitness Magazine to hand, take a look at page 20 and they have featured my "100 runs in 100 days" challenge under the title of "Inspiring Runner". I started on June 11th and have run at least 6.2 miles every day, sometimes more - and will continue to do so until September 18th where run number 100 will be the Bupa Great North Run.

The challenge has seen me running in England, Scotland, Ireland and France and when I have finished I will have covered more than 25 marathons worth of mileage. I am raising awareness of type 1 diabetes and my chosen charity is the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).  I ran in yesterday's Tameside 10K - (a very well organised event - thanks Kiwi Classic Events) and ran number 87 this morning before work.

Looking foward to running alongside you all at the Great North Run in my JDRF "Team Pingu" vest!

Thanks for reading this - Keep on running!

Couldn't agree more. When you have run every day for 4 decades then give us a call

More impressed if you could actually run quickly. 51:06 is hardly setting the world alight.

These 50 marathons in 50 days (& their ilk) are all very tiresome. Most people have run/walked since the day they gave up crawling as babies.

Wow - what a great job on welcoming a first time poster to the forum.

Tom - hope you managed to finish the challenge. As a fairly new person to the forums myself I haven't found many dicks on here so don't take the above to heart...

Think you are on the wrong sort of site if you are trying to find dicks

Point proved - cheers for that.

De nada
