After a telephone interview with a local reporter I made the local press.
Great article - thanks Alex.

So I'm about to go and get ready to do my final run as part of this challenge.
I don't know how many people read these blog notes - this has been a hard but rewarding trip this past year.
I've learnt so much about me - what I can achieve if I really go for it - but most of all each day I have carried with me the names of people who are here, and those who are not - all affected by this terrible disease. It doesn't care who or how old - it just attacks.
People are beating it daily and the research does continue - but we can't stop trying to help others.
If by completing this I can help one person, one family then it has all been worthwhile.
I've no idea how many people are going to turn up to the park run this morning - I am aware of some but I know that I am going to find today pretty emotional and draining, but so worthwhile.
If you are reading this - thank you for being on this journey with me.
So the countdown begins. Today starts with 10 days to go and nearly 1,250 miles completed. I wonder how far I can actually take this in the remaining 9 runs.
With only 18 days to go I've now passed 1,200 miles - which is way further forward than what I had initially thought I would do.
So today was supposed to be the last day, but due to illness and hospital stays I need to keep going until the 1st September. Ran early to allow myself to enjoy the day and what a great day I had spending it with the family.
Out in the evening for a great meal with the extended family.
... I pass 1,100 miles - that's 100 miles in 23 days. That also included the final two races of the East Midlands 2018 Grand Prix series - Harborough 5 miles and Milton Keynes 10k. Both were run in good times and I look forward to taking them on again next year.
This is my latest tracking and when I look at these numbers I realise just how far I have come - remembering in April 2017 I started the Couch to 5K - if I can do it anyone can.
