Thanks to Dave Tisley for this one, so how does it work, join today as it starts tomorrow and then you have 180 day's to run the 874 miles.

Un-Social Running

From Andy:  Thought I would give the virtual marathon a go after inspiration from last weekend VLM runners. I would have been running the North Dorset Village Marathon this weekend.

From Anita: Trying to increase the distance today, but made sure I had plenty of cutbacks built into the route just in case. I'm lucky to live close to some lovely places that I can get to from my doorstep. Although today was a run of two emotions, cross at the flytippers then humbled by the positive vibes. Even managed to get a photograph of a postbox for Sue, and also picked up some free tomato plants at the end πŸƒ‍β™€οΈπŸŒ±Today's t-shirt the 'Dorset Ooser' from 'Badger Trail Events' πŸƒ‍β™€οΈπŸŒ³πŸŒΌπŸŒΈπŸ¦‘
