Clearly, many of you got off to a flyer in the #Run1000Miles challenge for 2021. However, if the motivation of the new year has subsided, be sure to log on to our Facebook group to find likeminded individuals who will inspire you to keep going.
You could also do what #Run1000Miles regular Neil Shoesmith (below) did and set yourself a challenge within a challenge. He decided to find a route near his home and succeeded in setting an inaugural Fastest Known Time. Whether it’s aiming to hit 100 miles in a month or training to take part in a virtual race, giving yourself a mini-target will help you to stay on track. Check out what some of our other #Run1000Milers have been up to.
Toughing it out
"Managed 146 miles this month despite snow and ice in Yorkshire so well pleased to be on track. Aiming to do this by the end of September. #nevertooold".

My dog, Bella (below) won’t let anyone take her Trail Running attire off her, and she has worn this solidly for five days and nights.
Leading the way
Looking at the recognised FKTs local to me, I found there were a few that did not have any record set for them! One of them was the Blackwater Valley Path... If you are struggling for motivation this early part of the year then have a look to see what’s out there close by.

Mud and glory
I asked my husband to plot today’s route and he plotted a good ’un! Hope you’re all doing OK and getting out when you can!

Anyone can do it!
Set out run 100 miles in January despite being unfit and clinically obese. By just slogging away at lower mileage, I achieved it. To all the plodders, enjoy your runs!
