Back on the trail tomorrow for upandrun 21
Tomorrow is my birthday. My present to myself is to run from home to where I was born for upandrun 21.
21 is not my age.
The idea came from the Pegasus Ultrarunning guys. They have created an Ultra Marathon Birthday Hall of Fame.
Of course, the primary purpose is to raise awareness of the problem of chronic pain that besieges so many people across the globe.
It is also to share hope as our knowledge and understanding of pain advances at a rapid rate. As a result we can help people shape positive futures.
Further, ultrarunning is a way to experience one’s own pain and learn — blog here.
From there I will find my way along the coast to Hastings, where it all began. I don’t remember that day, but I know it happened.
The distance will end up around 80k I would suspect. Time? No idea. I always get that wrong.
One of the beauties of heading off on a long bimble is the loss of a sense of time. I often have no idea of the hour. There is only this moment. Truly present.
As ever, pics will be on social media.
