16 miles to the best party in the North East!

Yesterday's 1st of 7 days of running 16 miles per day was split over 2 sessions. The first of which was the usual 10.5 mile Peter's Pies 6 Tyne Bridges Challenge done in 01:40:01. The second run was a nice easy 5.5 mile stroll from Shotley Bridge to Low Westwood and back in 00:54:03.

Today's 16 mile effort will see me run from Shotley Bridge through Ebchester, Rowlands Gill, Blaydon and over the Scotswood Bridge. The final destination will be my beloved St James' Park just in time to watch the lads play Sheffield United and hopefully confirm promotion back to the big time. 

The stadium promises to have a party atmosphere about it today. Hopefully, the football on the pitch will be worthy of our wonderful support. Howay the lads!
