This is a thread in honour of our mate Dave Moulder of Devon, aka 200 minutes. He is a regular and commited athlete, and was last week diagnosed with cancer of the throat. On Thursday 10th August he will be going to hospital to start the treatment course. All his on line friends, mates, acquaintances, and correspondents have decided that we will collectively run 200 miles in his honour as a vote of solidarity.

This page is to report out progress: when you have come back from your run add your mileage/ forum name/ and then total up the miles run by all the thread contributors today, Thursday 10th August.

Like this:
5960miles/ MtB/ total now = 5960
1 mile/ blisters/ total now = 5961 miles
(except we haven't started yet, so the first person starts from zero, geddit?)

And don't forget the web page: http://www.justgiving.com/200minutes

Here's two digits to the crab!

When you come in, add your name, your mileage and the new total.

I'd like to say all miles count 2XX. The XX are for Schoolrunner, who could do with a few miles herself.


Birkmyre - 5
NZC - 5

Total 10

Shows I was sleepy! Didn't read Blisters instructions carefully.

Heading out for my "run" now. Aim is to run my fav. 6 mile route. I suspect it will take me a considerable time this morning, even by my standards. I look forward to some tea at the end of it! Gorgeous morning here.

I am off to work but leaves a flask full of brimming hot tea for your return:-)

Much obliged for that tea WP!

Qua run, I'll leave that to the other thread. To sum, I fell over twice within the first 15 minutes. OK, so it's going to be that sort of day. Not stopping though. Had to go really slow, very upright, not risking &rse over tip again thank-you. Stopped to take pics (that's ok) and in the end couldn't really distinguish my efforts at running from a walk, so stopped trying. But that's ok. Got round as promised.

You'll have days like that too. Times when you just have to pick yourself up and keep plugging onwards. There will be other times too, when the only thing to do is to stand by the side, cheering the others, holding the coats, attempting to fight down the green eyed envy at those who can still run.

But you'll be back running with them. And don't be too hard on that green-eyed monster either. It's just the other manifestation of the spirit within us that wills us to win. And when you're back running, every mile will carrry a double satisfaction that you will struggle in vain to describe.

You too, school runner. It's a long haul ahead. But hey, we're runners. We know about that. Courage all.

Off to brew up another pot. Flapjack anyone?

A crisp breezy morning here in the Fens - just the day for a thoughtful run of quiet contemplation.

Best wishes 200m and School Runner
