It might seem odd that Day 19 of #REDBED would be of note. But it is.
As I explained in my first #REDBED post, my run streak started a little earlier than planned. 31st October to be exact.

It also means I’ve got 6 days to try to see if I can get up to the top ‘award’ at 250km. But that’s just a bonus, my aim was 200km! I’ll let Strava celebrate that one!
