Challenge 8: Seeking an Epiphany

The next set of steps in my challenge to raise awareness of muscular dystrophy & in particular the case of Alfie  & Arthur will be loosely alligned to the twelve days of Christmas. It will involve me running a twelve 12mile loop around the Devil's Punchbowl twelve times. I will refine the loop this weekend but it will be predominantely off road and hilly.
