#Juneathon Day 10 – Fame at last

I woke up this morning feeling very pleased. I had given yesterday’s Potters ‘Arf about 60% effort, and at then end, I felt I had plenty left in my legs, and could have continued. This is good, as have entered the Chester Marathon in October (my first whole marathon, eep!) , and I need the psychological reassurance that I’m not going to die. Aside from being hugely enjoyable, Potters was a little experiment, and it has paid off.

I was doubly pleased this morning when I popped into the local shop and found my picture had made it’s way into the local rag – fame at last!!! To be fair, 56 of the Green Army made the distance yesterday (a club record we reckon) and there were therefore quite a few shots of us in print (we are photobomb experts) but it made me proud to see myself in club colours trying to look tough.

Tonight I ran for three short miles around Trentham (#Runkeeper) and it felt good. In fact, this week I have achieved a record, my fastest average pace in a week, which is another psychological missile in my arsenal… It would seem that #Juneathon is doing it’s job, and coaching me in the right direction. Oh, and today I am 50th out of 14,038 #Runkeeper users on world-rank.in. That is just weird…
