    Story

    In June I will be running 93.09 miles. Why this number, you ask?

    93.09 miles is equivalent to 22 yards (the length of a cricket pitch) for every run scored by Earl Stonham batsmen in 2019 (4887 runs) PLUS a mile for every year since the club reformed in 1988.

    2020 has proven to be an unpredictable and unusual year. By now the cricket season would be well underway, teams would be devoting whole weekends to playing a much loved sport whilst proudly representing their teams, supported by families and friends. The Covid-19 pandemic hasn't yet allowed this to happen.

    Unfortunately due to the nature of cricket, there are still costs to keep the ground match ready and the equipment needed working despite the season being on hold. Without the ability to play games, hold social events and open the pavilion bar post-match, the club is losing a significant amount of much needed money.

    On a personal note, 2020 has also brought an unexpected diagnosis of Crohn's disease. I have relied heavily on the information and support from Crohn's and Colitis UK from what to expect during diagnosis, treatment and living with an incurable illness.

    To counteract the negative aspects of the year so far, I have decided to do something positive and raise money for causes which brings positivity to other peoples' lives as well as my own. The money raised from this page will be split between ESCC and the Crohn's & Colitis UK charity.

      It’s been a great way to keep fit during lockdown, explore the countryside I never knew existed so close to home and more importantly... raise money for both ESCC and C&C UK. Thank to you so much to everyone who has shown support and donated, including offline donations we've raised £909 which is incredible!

      I did it! Last nights run of 4.3 miles got the total mileage to 93.4 miles, completing the challenge! I’ve run in wind, rain, sun and heatwaves…realised I have a terrible sense of direction, magnesium lotion is my best friend and that listening to cheesy pop makes running easier. It was only last May that I participated in my first 5km so extremely happy that I’ve managed to run distances up to 10 miles let alone cover 93 miles in a month....

      Day 26: After a rather enjoyable 6 miles last night we're at 89.09 miles! The remaining 4 miles will probably be covered in one last run... preferably when its not hotter than Ibiza outside :) For now, a photo of me doing my usual routine of getting lost in countryside fields last night.
