#Juneathon: Day 20 – One More Mile

Today I ran a mile… 1.24 miles to be exact (Movescount). It was hot and muggy but was a mile I otherwise wouldn’t have run and I am proud of it.

When I did my LIRF course I was told an interesting statistic: less than 1% of the UK population can run a mile without stopping. Now a mile is further than you think, especially when you’re on your own two feet, but let’s think about that for a moment. Many people can run for short distances, often very quickly, but a mile is something only about 641,000 of us can do… When you can do multiple miles, us runners are in a fairly elite group. The top of the top 1%!  Then if you consider how many ran a mile today… then how many have run every day for the past 20 days, us #Junealthoners are practically up there with people who’ve walked on the moon or have enjoyed a Ringo Starr album!

That’s the reason I am proud of my one mile run. It won’t break any records but it’s a lot further than most people ran today.
