I have no shame, however. I stuck it out for four miles, despite the pain, and now I am at:
Which leaves me with only twenty miles to go. I should be able to handle that. That's only four times if I can manage five miles each time. I think I can even take Christmas day off it's going well enough.
Thanks to everyone for cheering me on...except Rish, who tells I'll never make it...never...cackle, cackle, cackle.
But merry Christmas to all of you, even Rish.
