Challenge 66

Fantastic achievement by Andy McMenemy over the past 66 days.  He been running 50km every day since 16 March ... in each and every one of the official UK cities.  And he's been raising money - lots of it, I hope - for ABF The Soldiers Charity.

I've been following his progress on the Challenge 66 website ... and reading about a couple of the more serious injuries he's endured which would have caused most runners to head to bed for a fortnight.  Ultra runners don't do that though ... instead, before the start of his adventure he made sure he had a very good team around him which included a top quality physiotherapist with specialist sports injury knowledge.

I'm sure he'll be the first to acknowledge that doing something like that is impossible without some good helpers. A big well done to everyone involved.
