I mentioned on the 8th day we were greeted by family, friends and a press photographer. The shots taken were for the Durham Times and the Northern Echo. It’s fantastic to get exposure in my local newspaper and it’s already helped raise even more money for Percy Hedley today. +
8 days down, 4 to go! 40.8 miles down, 19.2 to go! After todays mileage I certainly feel like I’m getting there!
Today was a day I’ve been both looking forward to and dreading since I set the challenge. To be totally honest, the run was great. Great until we hit the bank in Lanchester. It was an absolute killer. I thought the bank up to Broom House Farm was bad but this was harder. I felt like I was running on the spot for about half an hour! +
