Last lap

After a couple of visits to the oeteopath and a few calisthenics, Vanessa Blount’s knee is on the mend.

Last week she faced difficult conditions after a month’s rain fell overnight but nothing was going to stop her clocking up the miles.

“I ran so fast I managed to lose 2lbs although I only covered 20 miles,” Blount told Mole. “I’ll do short jogs for the remainder of the week followed by the big event on Sunday.”
