Boy oh boy what fun this was!
About 2 weeks ago I received an out-of-the-blue message from a friend, Joe, asking me if I would be free on Wednesday 13th February, and if I’d be up for running one mile as part of his team relay.
And since I didn’t have anything stopping me, I jumped at the idea of something running-related as my something new, and I’m certainly not one to back down from any sort of run challenge… especially when it’s only one mile!
And that’s how I came to be part of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay has been going for a number of years now, having started in London. This was the fourth year in Dubai and it did not disappoint. Over 100 teams of 10 runners per team, making up over 1,000 runners on the night – and an overall brilliantly organised event. This is definitely one that I’d like to get my company involved in next year!
It’s a simple concept.
10 runners each running one mile in a relay.
Here are a few of me on the night 🙂
