*beams😊 and waves back to Mrs. J.*
Hello and welcome HB. Sounds as though you’ve been having a rough time.

Haven’t seen the umbrage for ages. Could it have got left behind in 2019? Or even 2018?
Not-a-parkrun done this morning.

The umbrage was accidentally worn as swimming trunks by my good self. Sadly, the umbrage trunks disintegrated and I was left naked. Two local dogs saw my moon. I've never been back to that puddle again.

About This Thread

Maintained by Serendippily
Welcome to the 700 miles in 2020 thread, everybody welcome. The thread motto is:
'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

At normal times: All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles. Extra points for bins :-) And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed, sometimes even running.

Group link is here:

Mileage league for 700 here fetcheveryone.com/training-mileagetargets-filtered.php?category=RUN&mileage=700 Personal league tables and a link to set or amend run, swim, walk and cycle targets here:

If you do reach 700 miles before the end of the year, please reset your targets, so others can keep moving up the table :-)

Send an fmail to Serendippily if you want any races highlighted here and we will all cheer you on:
