So it’s the 1st of February. My first month of 2020 Stormtrooper running is in the bag, and what a month it has been!

Hold up a second, wait now. I thought you said that the 2018 - 100 Km run was “The Last Stormtrooper Run”?   Yes you’re right, I did say that, but a Stormtrooper can change his mind can’t he?  Please allow me to take you back to 2018, to a time when I thought the Running Stormtrooper had run his last run…

So it was 7 a.m. and I was half way through my challenge, I had already run 50 kms (31 miles). The time for my first 26.2 miles had beaten my previous 3 marathons (2016, 2017 & 2018). It’s safe to say I had been flying. However, as soon as I started running on the country park paths of Black Park I knew I had done the right thing by smashing as many miles as I could at Pinewood Studios. This terrain was far more tricky and full of potential trip hazards. I’ve fallen over in the armour before, it’s never a good thing.
